Hymns Of The Holy Eastern Church by John Brownlie

O GOD OF LIGHT AND LIFE AND JOY

tr., John Brownlie

8.8.6.8.8.6

I

O God of Light and Life and Joy,

Blest Trinity! my soul employ

While I have power to sing:

No song too glad to raise to Thee,

Eternal, glorious Trinity, --

No gift too rich to bring.

II

When darkness brooded o'er the earth,

At thy command light had its birth,

And night and darkness fled;

And still, where hearts are bound in night,

Thou speak'st the word, |Let there be light,|

And noontide beams are shed.

III

Death held the Christ of God enchained,

The grave the Lord of Life restrained,

And eyes were filled with tears; --

Awoke the morn in eastern skies!

Behold, the Lord of Life arise!

Farewell to mortal fears!

IV

O joyless still the spirit sighs,

And fearful looks to ebon skies,

And stars begin to shine; --

Lo! overhead the bright array,

The night is shining as the day,

When hopes and fears entwine.

V

O God of Light and Life and Joy,

Blest Trinity, my soul employ

While I have power to sing:

No song too glad to raise to Thee,

Eternal, glorious Trinity,

No gift too rich to bring.
