77  Phos Hilaron – A Song of the Light

O gladdening light,

of the holy glory of the immortal Father

heavenly, holy, blessed,

O Jesus Christ.

Now that we have come to the setting of the sun

and see the evening light

we give praise to God,

Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Worthy are you at all times

to be worshipped with holy voices,

O Son of God and giver of life:

therefore all the world glorifies you.
