Psalm Prayer for Psalm 63

Prayer after Psalm 63

Author of Light,
eternal God,
pour out your everlasting radiance on us,
who earnestly seek you,
that our lips may praise you,
our lives bless you,
and our meditations glorify you;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Source: Ludolph of Saxony, d. 1378

Translation in traditional English, from the Sarum Psalter:

Author of Light! Eternal God! do Thou pour everlasting radiance upon us, who, at day-break, watch for Thee; so that our lips may praise Thee, our life bless Thee, our morning meditations glorify Thee, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
