Malcolm Archer: Creator of the Stars of Night

Creator of the stars of night, thy peoples’ everlasting light, Jesu, redeemer, save us all and hear thy servants when they call. Thou camest bridegroom of the bride, as drew the world to eveningtide, proceeding from a virgin shrine, the son of man yet all divine. At thy great name, exalted, now, all knees must bend, all hearts must bow, and things in heaven and earth shall own that thou art Lord and King alone. To God the Father, God the Son, and God the Spirit, three in one, laud, honour, might and glory be from age to age eternally. Amen. (trans. J. M Neale)
