Ecce iam noctis LATIN JPEG

1.  See, night’s shadows are already waning,
     the rosy dawn of light shines forth;
     let us all beseech the Almighty with all our strength.

2.  That God, having mercy on us,
     might ward off all distress, grant health and salvation, 
     and with fatherly love give us the kingdom of heaven.

3.  May the blessed Godhead grant this to us –
     Father, Son, and co-equal Holy Spirit –
     Whose glory echoes through all the world.  Amen.
