I sat at the base of Your altar,
with a kindled lamp during a time of darkness.
Have You forgotten?

The light from my lamp
was like the light of a firefly.
You glimpsed at me,
lifting Your eyelids.

Today, how far are You from me?
I find myself in the depth of darkness.
Lift me up from shelterlessness onto Your shelter.

I know effulgence as truth without fearing darkness.
O origin of effulgence,

keep me at the base of Your holy feet.
