O Lux Aeterna, Uncreated Bright,
kindle our hearts with flame unperishing
that we might shine, refractions of your light
aglow in your eternal cherishing.
May our love, as yours, be bright with splendor:
a beacon of hope, a torch in darkness,
that all may find your embrace so tender,
so welcoming, so kind, so free in us.
May our love lead home the lost and broken,
that seen and known their freedom they may find,
that they might hear afresh your love spoken,
that your love and light might unblind the blind.
Grace, let us be for them a lantern, a
window to your heart: Amor Aeterna.
