O Christ, The Light Of Heaven

O Christ, the Light of heaven
And of the world true Light,
You come in all Your radiance
To cleave the web of night.

May what is false within us
Before Your truth give way,
That we may live untroubled,
With quiet hearts this day.

May steadfast faith sustain us,
And hope made firm in You;
The love that we have wasted,
O God of love, renew.

Blest Trinity we praise You
In whom our quest will cease;
Keep us with You for ever
In happiness and peace.
