Text by St. Alcuin (Prayer for Illumination). SAB a cappella. Chantlike with lush harmonies. Short enough for an introit, full enough for a short anthem.
Eternal Light, shine into our hearts.
Eternal Power, be our support.
Eternal Wisdom, scatter the darkness of our ignorance.
Eternal Pity, have mercy upon us.
That with all our heart and mind and soul and strength
We may seek your face.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
