Lo, now night's shadows slowly yield to morning,
All the fair East with golden light adorning,
With one accord out worship true is given,
Father of Heaven.

Do Thou, O Father through the day defend us,
Defend us through this day from all evil,
Peace and safety send us,
Give us joy eternal,
Joy forever in realms supernal.

Grant us these gifts,
O Thou most blessed giver,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
Glory to Thee from all Thy works be given,
Through earth and Heaven.
