From Darkness to Light


O Lord,
graciously enlighten our hearts
with your holy light,
that we may serve you without fear
in holiness and righteousness
all the days of our life.
Lead us out of the darkness of this world,
to the land of heavenly brightness;
through your mercy, O blessed Lord,
who lives and reigns over all things,
forever and ever.
