So when draws on the deeper night, And darkness shuts us from the light, Faith shall not know its gloomy sway, And night to Faith, shall shine as day.
Drive slumber from our spirits' eye,
As dead let carnal senses be,
Hear us, Thou everlasting Son!
ALSO FOR THE SEVENTH DAY.
As the fiery sun goes down,
Thou eternal Unity,.
Thou most blessed Trinity,
Early rose our song to Thee;
Now we humbly Thee entreat
Make Thy feeble suppliants meet,
To the Father and the Son,
With the Spirit, Persons three,
Yet one GODHEAD; let there be,
FOR THE SEASONS.
Mgmns for Advent.
CREATOR of the starry heaven,
JESU! Redeemer, deign to hear,
Thou, who to save a world forlorn
With deeper iove than man can know,
Thou, Who when all were shut in sin,
So the God-man, in wondrous wise,
Thou, to Whose glorious power so dread,
Bright angel hosts and hell's array,
JUDGE of that last and dreadful day,
With arms of Thy supernal grace,
To God the Father, God the Son,
All honor, glory, praise, and power,
