Now, that light, which shines

beyond the whole creation,

beyond everything,

in the highest worlds which are unsurpasingly good,

it is certainly this which is the light

within a person.

What God, of those who hear, is he

whose well-praised name we may record in this our sacrifice;

and how?
Who will be gracious? Who of many give us bliss? Who out of all the Host

will come to lend us aid?
The will and thoughts within my breast

exert their power: they yearn with love,

and fly to all the regions round.
