282. Light of light eternal

Leader:
I will bless you God! You fill the world with awe!
You dress yourself in light, rich, majestic light.

People:
Light of light eternal,
all things penetrating.
For your rays our souls are waiting.

Leader:
To you, O God, we lift up our souls.

People:
As the tender flowers,
willingly unfolding
to the sun their faces holding.

Leader:
My soul, bless God!
All my being, bless God's holy name!

People:
Ever so would we do,
light from you obtaining,
strength to serve you gaining.
