O Christ the Light of Heaven

You Come in All Your Radiance

O Christ the Light of Heaven is written by the Benedictine Nuns of Stanbrook Abbey. In the Divine Office (1974) it is sung at Tuesday (Week 1) Morning Prayer. The recommended musical setting in the Divine Office is the tune: Narenza, first published in the Hymnologium of 1584 . An alternative tune that can also be used is Christus Der Ist Mein Leben, as featured in the following video.
