Now That the Sun is Gleaming Bright
From the Latin; tr. John Henry Newman, 1836-1838
|Now that the sun is gleaming bright,|
Implore we, bending low,
That he, the uncreated Light
May guide us as we go.
2. No sinful word, nor deed of wrong
|3. And while the hours in order flow,|
O Christ, securely fence
Our gates, beleaguered by the foe,
The gate of every sense.
4. And grant that to thine honour, Lord,
