We give you thanks that you led our forbears in the Faith through a cloud by day and a fire by night; we give you thanks, kindly Light, that the torch of faith was brought to this land, and that you ever lead your people on. Light up our dark hearts by the light of your Christ; may his Word illumine our way, for you pour forth loving kindness upon your whole creation, Father, Son and radiant Spirit.
- May the Light of lights come to my dark heart;
- May the Spirit’s wisdom come to me from my Saviour.
- May the peace of the Spirit be mine this night,
- The peace of the Son be mine this night,
- The peace of the Father be mine this night,
- The peace of all peace be mine this night,
- Each morning and evening of my life.
