Hymn/Song Information

Creator of the stars of night Thy people




Creator of the stars of night,
Thy peopleís everlasting light,
Jesu, Redeemer, save us all,
And hear Thy servants when they call.


Thou, grieving that the ancient curse
Should doom to death a universe,
Hast found the medicine, full of grace,
To save and heal a ruined race.


Thou camíst,
the Bridegroom of the bride,
As drew the world to evening-tide;
Proceeding from a virgin shrine,
The spotless Victim all divine.


At Whose dread Name,
majestic now,
All knees must bend,
all hearts must bow;
And things celestial Thee shall own,
And things terrestrial, Lord alone.


O Thou Whose coming
is with dread
To judge and doom
the quick and dead,
Preserve us, while we dwell below,
From every insult of the foe.


To God the Father, God the Son,
And God the Spirit, Three in One,
Laud, honor, might, and glory be
From age to age eternally.


---Alternative verses---


Creator of the stars of night,
thy people's everlasting light,
Jesus, Redeemer, save us all,
hear thou thy servants
when they call.


Thou, sorrowing at the helpless cry
of all creation doomed to die,
didst save our lost and guilty race
by healing gifts of heavenly grace.


Thou cam'st,
the Bridegroom of the bride,
as drew the world to eventide;
proceeding from a virgin shrine,
the spotless Victim all divine.


At thy great Name, exalted now,
all knees in lowly homage bow;
al things in heaven and earth adore,
and own thee King for evermore.


To thee, O Holy One, we pray,
our Judge in that tremendous day,
ward off, while yet we dwell below,
the weapons of our crafty foe.


To God the Father, God the Son,
and God the Spirit, Three in One,
laud, honor, might and glory be
from age to age eternally.
