Lauds on Friday

Friday at Lauds –

Eternal glory of the sky,
Blest hope of frail humanity,
The Father’s sole-begotten One
And born the Virgin Mary’s Son”:

Uplift us with thine arm of might
And let our hearts rise pure and bright,
And ardent in God’s praises pay
The thanks we owe him every day.

~Office hymn, st. 1,2
