Rising in darkness, let us all keep watching







Rising in darkness,
let us all keep watching
let psalms provide our source of meditation
And sing with all our strength
hymns of adoration
to our Creator bring.




As we might praises
bring a holy ruler
so may we sing
your heavenly courts to enter
There with the saints to join
now and ever after
blessing on us confer.




Grant, blessed God head
this our prayer at dawning
that we reflect the goodness of your Presence
Your beauty shines, O Light,
O Sun, O Radiance
glory re-echoing.


~ Gregory the Great (6th century
