1 On this day, the first of days,
God the Father's Name we praise,
who, creation's Lord and spring,
did the world from darkness bring.
2 On this day the eternal Son
over death his triumph won;
on this day the Spirit came
with his gifts of living flame.
3 Maker, who didst fashion me
image of thyself to be,
fill me with thy love divine,
let my every thought be thine.
4 Holy Jesus, may I be
dead and buried here with thee;
and, by love inflamed, arise
unto thee a sacrifice.
5 Thou who dost all gifts impart,
shine, blest Spirit, in my heart;
best of gifts, thyself bestow;
make me burn thy love to know.
6 God, the blessÃ¨d Three in One,
dwell within my heart alone;
thou dost give thyself to me,
may I give myself to thee.
