O Thou who art the everlasting Essence of things beyond space and time
and yet within them; Thou who transcendest yet pervadest all things,
manifest Thyself unto us, feeling after Thee, seeking Thee in the shades
of ignorance. Stretch forth Thy hand to help us, who cannot without Thee
come to Thee; and reveal Thyself unto us, who seek nothing beside Thee;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
“John Scotus Erigena
