Hymn Aeterna coeli gloria
--Anonymous, Ambrosian (5th Century)
Eternal Glory of the sky,
Best hope of weak humanity,
The Father's sole-begotten One,
And Offspring of Virginity.
Uplift us with your arm of might,
And let our hearts rise pure and bright,
And, ardent in God's praises pay
The thanks we owe God every day.
Praise and honor to you, Father,
To your only Son divine,
Equal glory to your Spirit,
In our hearts your love enshrine. Amen.
From Friday Lauds in the Benedictine Breviary
