Breviary Hymns and Missal Sequences, Sunday Matins, Summer

cover to the ebook 'Breviary Hymns and Missal Sequences', translated by Archbishop Edward Gilpin BagshaweBy night let us all of us rise and keep watch,
And always attention to psalmody bring,
And sweetly our hymns, with harmonious notes,
To God let us sing.

That, praising together our merciful King,
With His glorified Saints we may merit to gain
Admission to Heaven, the Life without end
Therein to obtain.

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
