A Poor Brother's Hymnal
Friday, March 03, 2006
  Most Holy God, the Lord of Heaven
Most Holy God, the Lord of Heaven,
Who in the high arched sky has placed
The sun that flames up from the East
And brings the splendors of the dawn:

For you the dazzling star shines forth
Which in its gleaming path declares
The wonders of your glorious power,
And beckons us to worship You.

The day departs, the evening stars
Serenely light hte darkening sky;
The moon with cool reflected glow
Will bring the silences of night.

You, Holy One, Creator, Lord,
You in the primal workd once set
The boundareis of the day and night
And ordered seasons in their round.

Like sun and day, shine in our hearts;
Like moon and night, give loving peace.
Free us from bonds of blinding sin
And guide us on our path to You.

- Latin

All my favorite hymns. Most of them are from before the Reformation.
