The sun and moon,
the stars of the heavens
pale in comparison to you;
supernovae and Stellae Regiae
are swallowed up within your glory.
Your light dispels the deepest darkness,
your rays penetrate to the blackest depths.
Justice outshines oppression,
peace overcomes might,
love blots out hate,
trust envelops fear.
Even the darkest corners of the
do not remain untouched by your healing light.
Cut, O Life-Ray,
cut through the shroud that veils us.
that we may see.
Come, O Star of Justice,
and drive away the shadow of death!
“O Come, O Come Emmanuel” vs 6
O come, O Dayspring, come and cheer;
O Sun of justice, now draw near.
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night,
and death's dark shadow put to flight.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
shall come to you, O Israel.
