Great light, mover of all that is moving and at rest,
be my journey and my destination, be my want and
my fulfilling, be my sowing and my reaping, be my
glad song and my stark silence. Be my sword and my
strong shield, be my lantern and my dark night, be
my everlasting strength and my piteous weakness.
Be my greeting and my parting prayer, be my bright
vision and my blindness, be my joy and my sharp
grief, be my sad death and my sure resurrection!
