I will bless you God! You fill the world with awe!
You dress yourself in light, rich, majestic light.
Light of light eternal,
all things penetrating.
For your rays our souls are waiting.
To you, O God, we lift up our souls.
As the tender flowers,
to the sun their faces holding.
My soul, bless God!
All my being, bless God's holy name!
Ever so would we do,
light from you obtaining,
strength to serve you gaining.
