Aurora spargit polum

  1. Iam vana noctis décidant,
    mentis reátus súbruat,
    quicquid tenébris hórridum
    nox áttulit culpæ, cadat,

  2. Ut mane illud últimum,
    quod præstolámur cérnui,
    in lucem nobis éffluat,
    dum hoc canóre cóncrepat.

  3. Deo Patri sit glória
    eiúsque soli Fílio
    cum Spíritu Paráclito,
    in sempitérna sǽcula. Amen.
  1. Let night’s vanities now fall away,
    let the mind’s guilt fall away;
    those horrid things of darkness
    which sin’s night has brought: let it fall,

  2. So that the final dawn might flow
    out onto us who bow down
    in watchful expectation
    while this melody resounds.

  3. Glory to God the Father
    and to his only Son
    with the Spirit Paraclete,
    into eternal ages. Amen.
