Saint Jerome penitent by Matthias Stom (fl. 1615–1649), via Wikimedia Commons

O Lord, you have given us your word
  for a lamp to shine upon our path;
Inspire us to meditate on that word
   and follow its teaching,
   that we may find in it the light that shines
   more and more until the perfect day;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

St Jerome, c.347-420, translator of the Latin Vulgate

Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky
