Creator of the Stars of Night

The seventh century Advent office hymn, Conditor alme siderum, sung here in English translation by the choir of Ely Cathedral:

Almighty God, give us grace that we may cast away the works of darkness, 
and put upon us the armour of light, now in the time of this mortal life
in which thy Son Jesus Christ came to visit us in great humility;
that in the last day, when he shall come again in his glorious Majesty 
to judge both the quick and the dead, we may rise to the life immortal; 
through him who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost,
now and ever. Amen.
