Christ, gladdening light of holy glory,
glory of God, heavenly Father immortal,
the holy blessed One, our Lord Jesus Christ,
we come now to the peaceful hour of sunset;
we see the star of evening shine;
we sing to the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, one God.
You are worthy at all times to be praised
and honoured with pure and pious songs.
God's only Son our only lifegiver:
wherefore all the world gives glory to you, its Master.
