.

Creator of the stars of night,

Thy people’s everlasting light,

Jesu, Redeemer, save us all,

And hear Thy servants when they call.

.

Thou, grieving that the ancient curse

Should doom to death a universe,

Hast found the medicine, full of grace,

To save and heal a ruined race.

.

Thou cam’st, the Bridegroom of the bride,

As drew the world to evening-tide;

Proceeding from a virgin shrine,

The spotless savior so divine.

.

At Whose dread Name, majestic now,

All knees must bend, all hearts must bow

And things celestial Thee shall own,

And things terrestrial, Lord alone.

.

O Thou Whose coming is with dread

To judge and doom the quick and dead,

Preserve us, while we dwell below,

From every insult of the foe.

.

To God the Father, God the Son,

And God the Spirit, Three in One,

Laud, honor, might, and glory be

From age to age eternally.

Text: Unknown author, 7th Century (Conditor alme siderum)
Translation: Latin to English by John M. Neale, 1852.

Music: Bruce Benedict, 2008
