Breviary Hymns and Missal Sequences, Sunday Lauds, Summer

cover to the ebook 'Breviary Hymns and Missal Sequences', translated by Archbishop Edward Gilpin BagshaweBehold the Aurora; the morn’s ruddy light
Breaks forth, and night’s shadows are melting away,
Then, singing sweet hymns to the Lord of the world,
Let all of us pray;

That He may with pity on sinners look down,
And give us true life, and make sorrows all cease,
And grant to us all the ineffable gift
Of Heavenly peace.

This grace may the Father’s Divinity give,
And His One Only Son, His true Image and Word,
And the Spirit, most Holy, whose praises immense
Are everywhere heard. Amen.

– translated by Archbishop Edward Gilpin Bagshawe, C.O., Bishop of Nottingham, England
