Description

SATB a cappella (optional keyboard). A setting of the Phos hilaron, translated by Stephen Heersink. Includes an optional text for non-Evening services. Beautiful use of harmonic 7ths and 9ths.

Gracious light, radiant in glory, splendor of the heavenly Father; Holy, immortal, blest Jesus Christ.
Coming to the setting of the sun [With the people who in darkness dwell]
,
To behold the heavens' vesper light [We behold the heavens' holy light].
We praise you: Father, Son, and Spirit; you are worthy of our joyful praise, O Son of God, O author of Life;
Now and always everywhere adored.
