Phos Hilaron

Those outside of the Liturgical Church have jettisoned so much of their wonderful heritage in efforts to separate themselves from "all things roman". I'd invite all my non-liturgical Brethren and Sistren to consider and meditate on the following:
O gracious light,
pure brightness of the everliving Father in heaven,
O Jesus Christ, holy and blessed!

Now as we come to the setting of the sun,
and our eyes behold the vesper light,
we sing your praised, O God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

You are worthy at all times to be praised by happy voices,
O Son of God, O Giver of Life,
and to be glorified through all the worlds

Hmmmmm, Vespers.
