In the beginning was the Word.
What has come into being through the Word was life
and that life is the light of all people.
The light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness cannot overcome it.
“Where is the child who is born king of the Jews?
For we have seen his star at its appearing
and we have come to pay him homage.”
By the tender mercy of our God,
the dawn from on high will break upon us,
to give light to those who sit in darkness
and in the shadow of death,
to guide our feet into the way of peace.
Pay attention to this,
as to a lamp shining in a dark place,
until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.
The eye is the lamp of the body.
If your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light.
You are the light of the world.
Let your light so shine
that others may see and glorify God.
And there, ahead of them, went the star.
