A setting of the Phos hilaron (contemporary English text) for SATB, organ, and optional string quartet.
Peaceful and prayerful.
O gracious light, pure brightness of the everliving father in heav'n. O Jesus Christ, holy and blessed. Now as we come to the setting of the sun, and our eyes behold the vesper light, we sing your praises, O God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. You are worthy at all times to be praised by happy voices, O, Son of God, O giver of life, and to be glorified through all the worlds. Amen.
