O Gracious Light
      Phos hilaron

O gracious Light,
pure brightness of the everliving Father in heaven,
O Jesus Christ, holy and blessed!

Now as we come to the setting of the sun,
and our eyes behold the vesper light,
we sing your praises, O God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

You are worthy at all times to be praised by happy voices,
O Son of God, O Giver of life,
and to be glorified through all the worlds.

(Evening Prayer in The Book of Common Prayer, p. 118 )

    Thank you

  2. That light in the sky shines only those who stand in it’s presence…The light of the world will embrace all of us one day…as every knee will bow and declare who is the King of Kings
