1. Eternal joyous light, the Father's glory giv'n,
Lord Jesus Christ, most holy, blest by earth and heav'n!
At every setting sun we see your glorious light:
O blessed Father, Spirit, Son, our heart's delight!
2. With voices purified by your most holy flame,
We sing your praise and magnify your holy name.
The universe declares your glory and your might,
O Son of God, our Saviour true, give us your light.
3. We bless you, Lord and King, the God of Israel,
For with the cloud and fire, you led your people well.
Lead us by Christ, your Light along our darkened way:
His words our lamp, our light to guide to heaven's day!
4. Your mercy and your love shine brightly on your world,
And all creation sings your praise, most holy Lord.
We glorify your name, blest Father, glorious Son,
and Holy Spirit, now and while all ages run!
This liturgical paraphrase of Joyous Light
is sung to the tune of: "Yigdal."
It is written to be used for Evening Prayer.
