Light within all light
Soul behind all souls
At the break of dawn
At the coming of day
We wait and watch.
Your Light with the morning light
Your Soul with the human soul
Your presence becoming to us from the heart of life.
In the dawning of this day
Let us know fresh shinings in our soul.
In the growing colours of new beginning all around us.
Let us know the first lights of our heart.
Great Star of morning
Inner flame of the universe
Let us be a colour in the new dawning.
