O Gladsome Light – Evening Prayer

Greek hymn, Phos Hilaron, an evening prayer of the Early Church.

Alegre Luz de la santa gloria del eterno Padre, bendito Cristo Jesús./ En el horizonte vemos ya ponerse el sol y admiramos el fulgor del ocaso./ Alabamos al Padre, al Hijo y al Paracleto…

O Gladsome Light of the holy glory,  of the immortal Father, Heavenly Blessed Jesus Christ…

The congregational version is in GIA’s bilingual hymnal. You can find the choral version here.
