Give Me Light

The Prophet

O God, give me light in my heart and light in my tongue and light in my hearing and light in my seeing and light in my feeling and light in every part of my body and light before me and light behind me.
Give me, I beg you, light on my right hand and light on my left hand and light above me and light beneath me.
O Lord, make light grow within me and give me light and illuminate me.
