Hail, holy Light, offspring of Heaven first-born,
Or of the Eternal coeternal beam,
May I express thee' unblam’d ? since God is light,
And never but in unapproached light
Dwelt from eternity, dwelt then in thee,
Bright effluence of bright essence increate.
Or hear’st thou rather, pure ethereal stream,
Whose fountain who shall tell ? before the sun,
Before the heavens thou wert, and at the voice
Of God, as with a mantle didst invest
