Eternal maker of all things
Of day and night
the sov'reign King,
Refreshing mortals, You
The rhythm of the seasons' change
The rooster sounds his
--Throughout the night he watched the sky--
For travelers, a
To tell the watches of the night.
The morning star that
hears the cry
Dispels the darkness from the sky.
The demons, hearing the
Abandon all their paths of harm.
The sailor hears and he is
The sea becomes a gentle wave.
The rooster's call reached Peter's
He washed away his sins in tears.
Our wav'ring hearts, Lord
O look upon us, make us free,
For in Your gaze no fault can
And sins by tears are washed away.
O Light, upon our senses
Dispel our sleepiness of mind,
That we may sing Your morning
Then, vows fulfilling, live our days.
