O God, the unwavering strength of all creation

Unmoved in yourself, forever the same,

Fixing the times by the light

Of day after day,

Grant to the evening a clear night,

A fine ending to life’s sweet light,

And may there attend an eternal glory

To the prize of a death most holy.

Bestow on us this favor, O holiest Father,

And You who alone are his equal,

Who with the Spirit Paraclete

Reigns forever and ever, amen.
