Daughter of Light
who reigns as Queen of Heaven
all praise and honour I joyfully give unto You.
Give me to learn that You are by me
in every act that I make.
Teach me obedience and humility
and joy of heart
that comes of self-forgetting.
Help me to be a clear mirror of Your Love;
reflecting all the beauty of the world;
for beauty is the echo of Eternity.
Fix my heart on the Eternal
and let me not be turned from You by transient things.
Rescue me from the hands of darkness
that I may serve You with all my Being
here and in Your Bright eternity.
