TEXT (translated):

O God, grant me
light in my heart, and light in my tomb
light in my hearing, and light in my seeing
light in my hair and light in my skin
light in my flesh and light in my blood

O God, increase my light and give me
the greatest light of all
Of Thy mercy grant me light,
O Thou merciful.
