Eternal Lord

Eternal Light, shine into our hearts,
Eternal Goodness, deliver us from evil,
Eternal Power, be our support,
Eternal Wisdom, scatter the darkness of our ignorance,
Eternal Pity, have mercy upon us;
that with all our heart and mind and soul and strength
we may seek Thy face
and be brought by thine infinite mercy
to Thy holy presence;
Through Jesus Christ our Lord.
[Alcuin of York, 8th Century]
