O Lord, you are the light in the darkness,
Creator of all of the elements,
Forgiver of our sins;
O Lord, may your great mercy be on us
as we seek you with our whole heart.
We hear of your majesty, O Lord, in the morning.
Blot out our sins,
for nothing is hidden from you,
who lives and reigns,
one God, now and forever.
Tu es, Domine, illuminator caliginum, conditorque elementorum, remissor criminum; misericordia tua, Domine, magna est super eos qui te toto corde requirunt. Majestas tua, Domine, mane nos exaudiat, et deleat delicta nostra quae tibi non sunt abdita, Qui regnas, &c.
