Devotional Tidbits: From the Benediictine Breviary
Hymn Lux ecce surgit aurea
Behold the golden Light appears,
Making night's blindness fade away.
Too long has it led us astray
And drawn us toward the dark abyss.
May this new be calmly passed,
May we keep pure while it shall last,
Not let our lips from truth depart
Nor evil plans engage the heart.
Above us is His loving eye,
The faithful guardian all our life,
Witness of all our daily deeds
From break of day til evening star.
Praised be the Father and the Son,
and Holy Spirit equally,
The Triune Godhead Three in One,
Now and for all eternity.
--From Thursday Lauds in the Benedictine Breviary
