Offertory: “O Gracious Light” -Helvey
O gracious Light, pure brightness of the ever living Father in heaven.
O Jesus Christ, holy and blessed!
Now as we come to the setting of the sun,
And our eyes behold the vesper light,
We sing your praises, O God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
You are worthy at all times to be praised by happy voices.
O Son of God, O giver of life,
And to be glorified through all the worlds.
(Text from the Book of Common Prayer 1979)
