Diei luci reddita

  1. Per quem creátor ómnium
    diem noctémque cóndidit,
    æterna lege sánciens
    ut semper succédant sibi.

  2. Tu vera lux fidélium,
    quem lex vetérna non tenet,
    noctis nec ortu súccidens,
    ætérno fulgens lúmine.

  3. Præsta, Pater ingénite,
    totum ducámus iúgiter
    Christo placéntes hunc diem
    Sancto repléti Spíritu. Amen.
  1. Through him the creator of all things
    made both night and day,
    consecrating by an eternal law
    that each follow the other.

  2. You are the true light of the faithful,
    whom the old law cannot restrain,
    shining with an eternal light
    that follows neither night nor dusk.

  3. Grant, Father unbegotten,
    that we might continually lead
    this entire day pleasing to Christ
    filled with the Holy Spirit. Amen.
