Eternal creator

Eternal creator of the world
Who rules the day
Who rules the night
Who give the hours their time
The herald of day

Watchman of the deepest night
Call forth a nocturnal light
Dividing night from night
In him the morning star arises

Break the darkness of the sky
In him the host of wanderers
Leave the way of the wicked lie
Look upon the fallen my lord
Set straight with your glance
Scatter sleep from our minds
