We thank you, O God, for the light which wakes us morning by morning; for the light of learning which brings knowledge;

but most of all we thank you for the divine light which is reflected in the face of Jesus Christ and which enlightens our lives by the Holy Spirit.

 Shine upon us and within us as we come to your light.  Amen.
