1 Dearest Jesus, at your word
We have come again to hear you;
Let our thoughts and hearts be stirred
And in glowing faith be near you
As the promises here given
Draw us wholly up to heaven.
2 All our knowledge, sense, and sight
Lie in deepest darkness shrouded,
Till your Spirit breaks the night,
Filling us wth light unclouded.
All good thoughts and all good living
Come but by your gracious giving.
3 Radiance of God's glory bright,
Light of light from God proceeding,
Jesus, send your blessed light;
Help our hearing, speaking, heeding,
That our prayers and songs may please you,
As with grateful hearts we praise you.
4 Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
Praise to you and adoration!
Grant us what we need the most;
Your blest Gospel's consolation,
While we here on earth await you,
Till in heav'n with praise we greet you.
