That, when He the day shall close,
And the night successive bring, We, triumphant o'er our foes,
May our hymn of glory sing ;
Glory, Sire of all, to Thee;
And to Thee, Co-equal Son, With the Spirit, glory be;
One in Three, and Three in One.
Evening Hymn for Monday
Immense cæli Conditor
ALL-PRESENT Framer of the sky,
Each to the space, for each assign'd,
Pour out Thy Spirit, and embue
Let Faith her growing light supply,
And on the world's vain follies tread.
So be Thy will, O Father, done; And Thine, Co-equal only Son; With Him combined in union meet, The Holy Ghost, the Paraclete.
Morning Hymn for Tuesday
Ales diei nuntius
The bird, the harbinger of light,
Has sung his morning strain :
And call to life again ?
· Arise,' He cries, “your beds forsake,
Nor slothful, slumbering, lie ! Chaste, upright, temperate, wake, awake ;
For I, behold, am nigh.'
With prayer, and praise, and minds sedate
We, too, the Saviour rouse : For holy hearts delight to wait
On God with holy vows.
