O joyful Light!
Light and Holy Glory of the Father immortal,
the heavenly, holy, the Blessed One;
O Jesus Christ!
Now that we have reached the setting of the sun,
and see the evening light,
we sing to God,
Father + Son, and Holy Spirit.
It is fitting at all times
to raise a song of praise
in measured melody to You, O Son of God,
the giver of life.
Behold! The universe sings Your glory.
