This morning I read the following hymn in my devotional, “Magnificat.” The words could have been composed by Mother Teresa, because, like her most personal writings edited and compiled by Brian Kolodiejchuk, M.C., they speak of finding the light in our darkness:
O Light that knew no dawn,
That shines to endless day,
All things in earth and heav’n
Are brightened by thy ray;
No eye can to thy throne ascend,
Nor mind thy brightness comprehend.
Thy grace, O Father, give,
That I might serve in fear;
Above all gifts, I pray,
Grant me thy voice to hear;
From sin thy child in mercy free,
And let me dwell in light with thee.
