A Prayer by Saint Ambrose

 O Splendour of the Father’s light

That makes our daylight lucid, bright;

O light of light and sun of day

Now shine on us your brightest ray.

True Sun, break out on earth and shine In radiance with your light divine;

By dazzling of your Spirit’s might, O, give our jaded senses light.

The Father sends his Son our Lord,

To be his bright and shining Word Come,

Lord, ride out your gleaming course And be our dawn, our light’s true course.

 

Saint Ambrose (1033-1109)
