Prayer Mondays: Ancient Hymn

Barring my faulty memory (and if I’m not lazy) I want to post prayers on Monday from all over Church History and then throughout the modern day, and then my own. This is an ancient hymn translated by Longfellow in The Golden Legend.

O Gladsome Light
Of the Father immortal,
And of the celestial
Sacred and blessed
Jesus, our Saviour!

Now to the sunset
Again hast Thou brought us;
And seeing the evening

Twilight, we bless Thee,
Praise Thee, adore Thee,
Father omnipotent!
Son, the Life-giver!
Spirit, the Comforter!

Worthy at all times
Of worship and wonder!
