from the Book of Common Prayer:

O God, light of all
hearts that seek you, life of all souls that love you and strength of the
thoughts that reach to you, we praise you.
To turn from you is to fall, but to be turned to you is to rise.  To live in you is to stand firm forever.  We rejoice at the thought of your nearness.  You are here in our midst, at our side, in our hearts, knowing, understanding, caring and helping.  And so we life our hearts to glorify you in praise and adoration.
