Be Thou My Light and Peace

O Savior of the World, God of God, Light of light, Thou that art The Brightness of Thy Father’s glory, and the express Image of his person; Thou that art the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and End of all things; Thou that has destroyed the power of the devil, that hast overcome death; Thou that art entered into the Holy of Holies, that sittest at the right hand of the Father, that art high above all thrones and principalities, that makest intercession for all the world; Thou that art the judge of the quick and the dead; Thou that wilt speedily come down in the Father’s glory to reward all men according to their works, be Thou my light and my peace, etc.

Williams Law
