‘Blessed be the Lord God of Israel,
   for he has looked favourably on his people and redeemed them.
He has raised up a mighty saviour for us
   in the house of his servant David,
as he spoke through the mouth of his holy prophets from of old,
   that we would be saved from our enemies and from the hand of all who hate us.
Thus he has shown the mercy promised to our ancestors,
   and has remembered his holy covenant,
the oath that he swore to our ancestor Abraham,
   to grant us that we, being rescued from the hands of our enemies,
might serve him without fear, in holiness and righteousness
   before him all our days.
And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Most High;
   for you will go before the Lord to prepare his ways,
to give knowledge of salvation to his people
   by the forgiveness of their sins.
By the tender mercy of our God,
   the dawn from on high will break upon us,
to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death,
   to guide our feet into the way of peace.’

– Luke 1.68-79 (The Song of Simeon)


O Dayspring, Radiant Dawn, O Dayspring, Morning Star, come.
O Dayspring, Sun of Righteousness, Splendor of Light, of Light Eternal:
Come and give your light to those who dwell in darkness;
Come illumine those in the shadow of death.
O Dayspring, Radiant Dawn, Morning Star,
Sun of Righteousness, Splendor of Light Eternal:
Come and give your light.
