        1. Jesus, Brightness of the Father,
        Life and Strength of all who live,
        For creating guardian angels
        Glory to Thy name we give
        And Thy wondrous praise rehearse,
        Singing in harmonious verse.
        2. Blessed Lord, by their protection
        Shelter us from harm this day,
        Keep us pure in flesh and spirit,
        Save us from the Foe, we pray,
        And vouchsafe us by Thy grace
        In Thy Paradise a place.
        3. Glory to the almighty Father
        Sing we with the heavenly host;
        Glory to the great Redeemer,
        Glory to the Holy Ghost;
        Three in one and One in Three,
        Throughout all eternity!
