Friday Morning Hymn

Friday Morning Hymn

Deus, qui caeli lumen

O God the lamp of heaven high
and source of light: your shining hand
unrolls the banner of the sky,
upholding it above the land.

Dawn, casting up a crimson tide,
has veiled the stars that saw its rise;
the morning breezes, far and wide,
with dewy breath the earth baptize.

The darkness from the sky has gone
as nightly shadows pass away;
the morning star, sign of the Son,
arising, wakes the sleepy day.

O God, O radiance wonderful ,
most glorious day and fairest light:
one God, in all things powerful,
Three Persons, matchless in one might!

To you, our Savior, brightest, best,
on bended knee our prayer we raise;
to Father and to Spirit blest,
with all our power, we offer praise. Amen.
