*Verbe égal au Très-Haut, notre unique espérance, Jour éternel de la terre et des cieux. De la paisible nuit nous rompons le silence: divin sauveur, jette sur nous les yeux. Répands sur nous le feu de ta grâce puissante; que tout l’enfer fuie au son de ta voix. Dissipe le sommeil d’une âme languissante qui la conduit à l’oubli de tes lois! Ô Christ ! sois favorable à ce peuple fidèle, pour te bénir maintenant assemblé. Reçois les chants qu’il offre à ta gloire immortelle, et de tes dons qu’il retourne comblé. 

Word of God, one with the most high, in whom alone we have our hope. Everlasting day of heaven and earth, we break the silence of the peaceful nigh. Saviour divine, cast your eyes upon us! Pour on us the fire of your mighty grace, that all hell may flee at the sound of your voice. Banish the slumber of a weary soul that brings forgetfulness of your laws! O Christ, look with favour upon your faithful people now gathered here to praise you. Receive their hymns offered to your endless glory; may they go forth filled with your gifts.
