Scatter Our Darkness

old_sarum_cathedral_reconstructionAlmighty God,
you have put the sun in the heavens
to scatter the night
and restore morning to the world.
Fill us with your mercy,
so that, with you as our Enlightener,
all the darkness of our sins may be dispersed;
through our Lord Jesus Christ.

In traditional English:

Almighty God,
who has planted the Day-star in the heavens,
and, scattering the night,
dost restore morning to the world,
fill us, we beseech Thee, with Thy mercy,
so that, Thou being our Enlightener,
all the darkness of our sins may be dispersed,
through our Lord Jesus Christ.
