AN ARDENT PRAYER AND HYMN TO THE MOST HIGH…

.

Eternal Glory of the sky,

Blest hope of frail humanity,

The Father’s Sole-begotten One,

Yet born a spotless Virgin’s Son.

.

Uplift us with Thine arm of might,

And let our hearts rise pure and bright,

And, ardent in God’s praises, pay

The thanks we owe Him every day.

.

The day-star’s rays are glittering clear,

And tell that day itself is near:

The shadows of the night depart;

Thou, holy Light, illume the heart.

.

Within our senses ever dwell,

And worldly darkness thence expel:

Long as the days of life endure,

Preserve our souls devout and pure.

.

The Faith that first must be possessed,

Root deep within our inmost breast:

And joyous Hope in second place,

Then Charity, Thy greatest grace.

.

All laud to God the Father be;

All praise, eternal Son, to Thee;

All glory, as is ever meet,

To God the Holy Paraclete.

.

– a 4th century prayer attributed to St Ambrose of Milan

PRAYER…

.

All Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit!
