O thou, the central orb of righteous love, Pure beam of the most high, eternal light Of this our wintry world, thy radiance bright Awakes new joy in faith, hope soars high above.
Come, quickly come, and let thy glory shine, Gilding our darksome heaven with rays divine. Thy saints with holy lustre round Thee move, As stars about thy throne, set in the height Of God’s ordaining counsel, as thy sight Gives measured grace to each, thy power to prove.
Let thy bright beams disperse the gloom of sin Our nature all shall feel eternal day, In fellowship with Thee, transforming day To souls erewhile unclean, now pure within. Amen.

Simon Dell, a qualified Dartmoor Guide and much sought after speaker, will be at the Boniface Centre on Monday 15 October, to give an illustrated talk about the History of Dartmoor Prison.
The talk will begin at 7.30pm. Admission is £6 and includes light refreshments.
Dartmoor Prison can hardly be a more notorious and bleak place. The original prison was built to house French and American prisoners of war, many never getting to return to their native homes, between 1809 - 1816 and then after remodelling in 1850 has housed convicts ever since, which have included murderers, conscientious objectors, terrorists, bank robbers and bigamists.
If you would like to learn more about the prison and its history and its connections with Crediton we hope to see you at the Boniface Centre. Further information is available from Bill on 01363 772865. ... See MoreSee Less
