Text
O gracious Light,
pure brightness
of the ever-living 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 thy praises, O God:
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Thou art worthy at all times
to be praised by happy voices,
O Son of God, praised by happy voices,
O Son of God, O Giver of life,
and to be glorified through all the worlds.

Phos hilaron, ancient Greek, para. Book of Common Prayer

Description
Craig Phillips's English-language setting of the "Phos hilaron" evening canticle begins with mystery, gradually building to evoke God being "praised by happy voices." The work ends in glorious splendor.
