Christian Worship Praise For The Glorious Light

Praise for the glorious light,
Which crowns this joyous day;
Whose beams dispel the shades of night,
And wake our grateful lay!

Praise for the mighty band,
Redeemed from error’s chain,
Whose echoing voices, through our land,
Join our triumphant strain!

Ours is no conquest gained
Upon the tented field;
Nor hath the flowing life-blood stained
The victor’s helm and shield.

But the strong might of love,
And truth’s all-pleading voice,
As angels bending from above,
Have made our hearts rejoice.

Lord! upward to thy throne
Th’ imploring voice we raise;
The might, the strength, are thine alone!
Thine be our loftiest praise.
