1 Now the dreary night is done,
Comes again the glorious sun;
Crimson clouds and silver white
Wait upon his breaking light.
2 Child of Mary, Thou dost know
What of danger, joy, or woe
Shall to-day my portion be--
Let me meet it all in Thee.
3 Thou wast meek and undefiled--
Make me holy too, and mild:
Thou didst foil the tempter's power;
Help me in temptation's hour.
4 Thou didst love Thy mother here-
Make me gentle, kind, and dear;
Thou wast subject to her word--
Teach me to obey, O Lord.
5 Fretful feelings, passion, pride
Never did with Thee abide:
Make me watch myself to-day,
That they lead me not astray.
