Renew me, O eternal Light,
And let my heart and soul be bright,
Illumined with the light of grace
That issues from your holy face.
Remove the power of sin from me
And cleanse all my impurity
That I may have the strength and will
Temptations of the flesh to still.
Create in me a new heart, Lord,
That gladly I obey your Word.
Let what you will be my desire,
And with new life my soul inspire.
Grant that I only you may love
And seek those things which are above
Till I behold you face to face,
O Light eternal, through your grace.
