O gracious light
Pure brightness of the everliving Father in heaven
O Jesus Christ, holy and blessed
Now that we come to the setting of the sun
And our eyes behold the vesper light
We sing your praises O God,
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
You are worthy at all times to be praised by happy voices
O son of God, O giver of life
And to be glorified through all the world.

O Gracious Light
With consecutive storm systems lining up and taking numbers all weekend, the sky over southern Orange County is the star of the show. The golden sun pours over Catalina and the Pacific while dark clouds encircle the mountains and foothills. This is the steeple of St. John's Church at 4:30 p.m.
