With You Is the Well of Life

O God,
with you is the well of life
and in your light we see light.
Impart to us the brightness of divine knowledge,
where our thirsting souls
may drink the water of life,
and our darkened minds
perpetual light from heaven;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Source: Mozarabic, 8th century, in Daily Prayer.

Daily Prayer’s version in traditional English:

O God, with whom is the well of life and in whose light we see light: Impart to us, we beseech thee, the brightness of divine knowledge, whereby our thirsting souls may receive the draught of life, and our darkened minds perpetual light from heaven; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

Mozarabic, ad.
