Who governest the world with might,
Accept the canticle of praise,
We sing through watches of the night.

The morn’s new-risen shinmg star,
Heralds the rising of the sun,
May Heavenly light enlighten us,
The gloom of night will soon be done.

To God the Father glory be,
And also to His Only Son,
With the Great Spirit Paraclete,
Now, and while endless ages run. Amen.

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