Behold, the shade of night is now receding! - Laudes ad matutinum (Gregory the Great/Ray Palmer/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Laudes ad matutinum.

1. Behold, the shade of night is now receding!
  Kindling with splendours, fair the dawn is glowing;
    with fervent hearts, O let us all implore him,
          Ruler Almighty! (PDF - Midi)

2. That he, our God, will look on us in pity,
  send strength for weakness, grant us his salvation.
    And with a Father's pure affection give us
          glory eternal.

3. This grace O grant us, God-head ever blesséd,
  of Father, Son and Holy Ghost in union,
    whose praises be through earth's most distant regions
          ever resounding.

Ray Palmer, in: The Poetical Works of Ray Palmer, 1876, 112-113.
