Creator of the stars of night,
thy people's everlasting light,
Christ, redeemer of us all,
hear our voices when we call.

Thou, grieving that the ancient curse
should doom to death a universe,
has found the medicine, full of grace,
to save and heal a ruined race.

Thou came, the Bridegroom of the bride,
and drew the world to evening tide,
proceeding from a virgin shrine,
the spotless Victim all divine.

At thy great name, majestic now,
all knees must bend, all hearts must bow;
all 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.

Virtue, honor, praise, and glory
to God — the Father — with the Son
And the Holy Ghost, together.
Forever and ever. Amen.
