God our ruler and guide,
your servant Robert Grosseteste
was a faithful pastor and teacher of your church;
may we in your light see light
and in your will find our peace,
that we may grow up together in Christ,
to the glory of your holy name.
your kingdom come
on earth as in heaven.
Look down, Lord, from your heavenly throne.
Illuminate the darkness of this night
with your celestial brightness,
and from us, the children of light,
banish for ever the deeds of darkness.
