Hail, Holy Light! The World Rejoices ~ Hymn

Hail, Holy Light! The World Rejoices

Hail, holy Light! The world rejoices
As morning breaks and shadows fly;
All nature blends her myriad voices
To greet the dayspring from on high,
To greet the dayspring from on high.

Break forth, in glory far excelling,
O Light eternal, Love divine!
Let Thy bright beams, all shades dispelling,
Around us and within us shine,
Around us and within us shine.

The heav’nly hosts fall down before Thee,
And “Holy!” cry, nor ever rest;
The saints on earth, with them, adore Thee,
Creator, Savior, Spirit blest,
Creator, Savior, Spirit blest.

O God, if we could duly praise Thee,
Could we but voice the love we see,
As sweet as song as angels raise Thee,
Our Sabbath morning hymn should be,
Our Sabbath morning hymn should be.

Accept, O Father, we entreat Thee,
The worship which Thy children bring;
O, grant us grace in Heav’n to greet Thee,
And with all saints Thy love to sing,
And with all saints Thy love to sing.

Words: Edwin P. Parker, in The Christ­ian Hymn­al, 1889.
