Lo! dim shadows of the night are waning;
Lightsome and blushing, dawn of day returneth;
Fervent in spirit, to the world’s Creator
Pray we devoutly:
That he may pity sinners in their sighing,
Banish all trouble, kindly health bestowing;
And may he grant us, of his countless blessings,
Peace that is endless.
This be our portion, God forever blessed,
Father eternal, Son, and Holy Spirit,
Whose is the glory, which through all creation
Ever soundeth. Amen.
