Daughter of Light

Daughter of Light*

Daughter of Light,
that reignest as Queen of Heaven,
all praise and honour we joyfully
give to You.
Give us to learn that You are by us
in every act we make.
Teach us obedience and humility
and joy of heart
that comes of self-forgetting.
Help us to be clear mirrors of Your Love;
reflecting all the beauty of the world;
for beauty is the echo of Eternity.
Fix our hearts on the Eternal and let us not be turned from You
by transient things.
Rescue us from the hands of darkness
that we may serve You with all our being
here and in Your bright Eternity.
