William Walsham How (1823-1897)
This day at thy creating word|
First o'er the earth the light was poured;
O Lord, this day upon us shine
And fill our souls with light divine.
2. This day the Lord for sinners slain
3. This day the Holy Spirit came|
With fiery tongues of cloven flame;
O Spirit, fill our hearts this day
With grace to hear and grace to pray.
4. O day of light and life and grace,
5. All praise to God the Father be,|
All praise, eternal Son, to thee,
whom, with the Spirit, we adore
For ever and for evermore.
