That we may Shine
Hear us, O never-failing Light,
Lord our God, the Fountain of light,
the Light of thine Angels, Principalities, Powers,
and all intelligent beings;
who hast created the light of thy Saints.
May our souls be lamps of thine,
kindled and illuminated by thee.
May they shine and burn with the truth,
and never go out in darkness and ashes.
May the gloom of sins be cleared away, and the light of perpetual faith abide within us. Amen.
