All holy Sovereign of the sky

All holy Sovereign of the sky,
whose voice creative throned on high
those orbs that shine so bright and fair,
and thy Almighty power declare:

By thy appointment to divide
the morning from the evening tide;
with influence sweet the earth to cheer,
and bless with grateful change the year:

Shine on our hearts, thou better Day,
and inward darkness chase away;
let danger flee before thy smile,
and sin no more our souls defile.

Such blessings, Lord, our prayers implore,
this evening and for evermore;
hear us, O Father, hear, O Son,
and Holy Spirit, Three in One.

Latin, earlier than 8th century; trans. Robert Campbell (1814-1868), 1850
