1 Lord of all being, throned afar, thy glory flames from sun and star; centre and soul of every sphere, yet to each loving heart how near!
2 Sun of our life, thy quickening ray sheds on our path the glow of day; Star of our hope, thy softened light cheers the long watches of the night.
3 Our midnight is thy smile withdrawn, our noontide is thy gracious dawn, our rainbow arch thy mercy's sign; all, save the clouds of sin, are thine.
3 Lord of all life, below, above, whose light is truth, whose warmth is love, before thy ever-blazing throne we ask no lustre of our own.
4 Grant us thy truth to make us free, and kindling hearts that burn for thee, till all thy living altars claim one holy light, one heavenly flame.
