Look upon us, O Lord,
and let all the darkness of our souls vanish
before the beams of thy brightness.
Fill us with holy love, and open to us the treasures of thy wisdom.
All our desire is known unto thee, therefore perfect what thou hast begun,
and what thy Spirit has awakened us to ask in prayer.
We seek thy face,
turn thy face unto us and show us thy glory.
Then shall our longing be satisfied,
and our peace shall be perfect.
(St. Augustine, 354 – 430)

To set the mind on the flesh is death,
but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace. (Romans 8:6)
