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 praises, 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.
Tomorrow is a day of new beginnings for a lot of school children.
Help them to see You in all they do -- help them to see You in the faces of the teachers and the other children in the school.
Help them be attentive to the students, teachers, staff and classmates who may be very different; Help them listen for God in all, even if they don’t think they are going to find God there.
Be with them and keep watch over them.
