Come, God our Light, and illumine our darkness.
Come, God our Life, and revive us from our death.
Come, God our Physician, and heal our wounds.
Come, Flame of divine love, and burn up the thorns of our sins,
kindling our hearts with the flame of your love.
Come, God our King, sit upon the throne of our hearts and reign there.
You alone are our King and our Lord. Amen.
