1.  The golden sun lights up the sky,

imparting vigor to the day.

Amid our customary round,

we offer you our prayer and praise.

2.  At the third hour you took your cross,

you stumbled, Lord, beneath its weight.

Now help us bear our daily load

and strive to follow where you lead.

3.  At the third our your faithful band

was clothed with power on Pentecost.

Bestow your Spirit on us now,

and give us strength to do your will.

4.  O God, creations’s ruling force,

O Jesus, crucified for us,

O Spirit, love’s life-giving ray,

we praise and bless you every hour.
