Eternal God, uncreated and primal Light, Maker of all created things, Fountain of pity, Sea of bounty, fathomless deep of Loving-Kindness: lift up the light of your face upon us! Lord, shine in our hearts, true Sun of Righteousness, and fill our souls with your beauty.Basil the Great (329 – 379AD)
Teach us always to keep in mind your wisdom, and to keep you continually as our Lord and Friend. Govern by your will the works of our hands; and lead us in the right way, that we may do what is well-pleasing and acceptable to you, that though we are unworthy your holy name may be glorified.
To you alone be praise, and honor, and worship eternally.
