In hymns of praise
we bless and glorify you
and give you thanks,
O God of our fathers,’
for you have dispelled the dark cloud of night
and have restored to us the light of day.
In your goodness forgive our sins,
and in your great mercy hear our prayer
as we seek refuge in you,
Almighty and most merciful God.
Make the true sun of your righteousness
shine in our hearts,
enlighten our understanding
and protect all our senses, that walking in confidence
as in the day
in the way of your commandments,
and enjoying your unfathomable light,
we may attain eternal life,
for with your is the fountain of life.
You indeed are the God of goodness and mercy
and unbounded love and we glorify you,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
now and for ever,
to the ages of ages. Amen,
