Christ, the True Light: My Night Prayer

Posted: November 12, 2006 in Life

Christ, the true light of us, true morn,
Dispersing far the shades of night,
Light from which every light is born.
Pledge of the beatific light.
You all the night our guardian be,
Whose watch no sleep or slumber knows:
You be our peace, and grant that we
In darkness may find our repose.

Sleep touch our eyes, but never sleep
Touch our heaven-directed heart.
And may your hand in safety keep
Fear of the night and us apart.

    but i feel that just a “thank you buddy” is more than enough.

  2. yes bkb, that would indeed, but this anthem came to my mind when my eyes are closed and I sing in silent mode.
