1The clouds of night have rolled away,
Now glorious shines the newborn day,
And we Thy children, drawing nigh,
Would praise Thy name, O God most high.
2O Father, grant our hearts may be
All pure and clean in praising Thee,
No unrepented sin defile,
No thought untrue, no word of guile.
3O Jesu, Morning Star most bright,
Pour on our souls Thy cleansing light,
That we with Thy true light may shine,
And follow Thee, our Star divine.
4O Holy Ghost, our hearts renew,
Pour on our souls Thy heavenly dew,
That we each hour and every day
May walk in Thine appointed way.
5Thus in the morning hour we raise
Our hymn of thankfulness and praise
With saints and with the Angel host
To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.
Revelation22:16I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
