|1||The 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.
|2||O Father, grant our hearts may be
All pure and clean in praising Thee,
No unrepented sin defile,
No thought untrue, no word of guile.
|3||O 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.
|4||O 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.
|5||Thus 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.
