Now that the star of day hath risen

Representative Text

1 Now that the star of day hath ris'n,
O God, we humbly pray
That Thou, the Uncreated Light,
Thyself wilt guide our way.

2 May neither tongue nor hand offend,
Nor mind the vain thought abide,
Upon the lips let simple truth,
Love in the heart preside.

3 While flows the day anew begun,
O Christ, our Watch and Ward,
The gates of sense, that hell assails,
From ev'ry danger guard.

4 Grant that each daily work of ours
May to Thy glory tend,
And ev'ry deed begun in Thee,
In Thee, with blessing, end.
