Illumine Me O My Lord

I have awakened in Thy shelter, O my God,

and it becometh him that seeketh that shelter

to abide within the Sanctuary of Thy Protection

and the Stronghold of Thy defense.

Illumine my inner being, O my Lord,

with the splendors of the Dayspring of Thy Revelation,

even as Thou didst illumine my outer being

with the morning light of Thy favor.
