A Prayer from Augustine

Look upon us, O Lord,
And let all the darkness of our souls
Vanish before the beams of your brightness.
Fill us with holy love,
And open to us the treasures of your wisdom.
All our desire is known to you,
Therefore, perfect what you have begun,
And, what your Spirit has awakened us to ask in prayer.
We seek your face,
Turn your face towards us and show us your glory.
Then shall our longing be satisfied,
And our peace shall be perfect.
(Augustine, 354 – 430)
