Week 3 – Oh Gracious Light – Advent 2018

Bellwether_journal_cover_stamp-11Welcome to Advent 2018

This year we are going to blog our way through the whole season of Advent & Christmas sharing one song a day! In week 1 we looked at advent songs that draw from OT language. In week 2 we are looking at gorgeous Advent texts that have been retuned. In Week 3 we will explore newer texts/tunes that we’ve sung (or hope too!).

Oh Gracious Light
The Brilliance chart | youtube

Song from one of The Brilliance’s Advent records exploring one of the earliest non-biblical hymns called the phos hilaron. A beautiful song for the season meditating on Christ as the light of the world.


LYRICS:

O Gracious Light, so pure and bright
Dispel the darkness of our hearts
That by Your brightness we may know the light
.
Incarnate Word, grant that the light
Deep enkindled in our hearts
May shine forth and give us divine life
.
Dayspring of Life, true Light from light
Pour into every broken heart
Peace and virtue binded by the light
.
O Jesus Christ, holy and blessed
We sing Thy praises in our hearts
God of heaven, Giver of all life
.
Bring Your peace, hope, and love
Bring Your peace, Gracious One
.
O Gracious Light, so pure and bright
Dispel the darkness of our hearts
That by Your brightness we may know the light.
