This Day at Thy Creating Word

  1. 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
    in might victorious rose again:
    O Jesus, may we raised be
    from death of sin to life in thee!
  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,
    from earthly toil sweet resting place,
    thy hallowed hours, blest gift of love,
    give we again to God above.
  5. All praise to God the Father be,
    all praise, eternal Son, to thee,
    whom, with the Spirit, we adore
    forever and forevermore.
