Ecce, iam noctis


(The Mundelein Psalter’s chant is nearly identical to the Benedictine.)
  1. Behold, now the night’s shadow dissolves
    light’s reddening drawn gleams;
    with all our strength let us persistently ask
    the allmighty,

  2. So that God might be merciful to us,
    might drive away anguish, might grant health,
    and might in his goodness give us
    the kingdoms of the heavens.

  3. My the bless Godhead of the Father and of the Son
    and equally of the Holy Spirit grant this to us;
    and may their glory resound
    through the whole world. Amen.
