St. Nicholas (Scholefield):
Clement C. Scholefield, 1870
Greek; |The Candlelight Hymn|, before 370, attr. to Sophronius;
Tr. Edward W. Eddis, 1864
O Brightness of the immortal Father's face,
Most holy, heavenly, blest,
Lord Jesus Christ, in whom his truth and grace
Are visibly expressed:
The sun is sinking now, and one by one
The lamps of evening shine;
We hymn the eternal Father, and the Son,
And Holy Ghost divine.
Worthy art thou at all times to receive
Our hallowed praises, Lord.
O Son of God, be thou, in whom we live,
Through all the world adored.
