++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The star of morn has risen;

O Lord, to Thee we pray:

O uncreated Light of Light,

Guide Thou our way.

+++++

Sinless, be Tongue and hand,

And innocent the mind,

Let simple truth be on our lips,

Our hearts be kind.

+++++

Let not the flesh prevail,

But all be ruled by good;

The gift of temperance bestow

In drink and food.

+++++

As the swift day rolls on,

Still, Lord, our Guardian be,

And keep the portals of our hearts

From evil free.

+++++

Grant that our daily toil

May to Thy glory tend;

And as our hours begin with Thee,

So may they end.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
