Great Eternal Light
That ancient darkness, shrouded in God’s light, Now flees my heart, and makes my sin my sight. Then doeth the Son, with burning coal, command: “Flee my glory. Flee! Sin, thou shall not stand.” In bearing light on man’s yet mortal frame Eternal Son doeth wayward sons reclaim. Thou Great Light which not even sun doeth precede, Shall long forth shine after other rays recede.
