God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: He made the stars also.@Genesis 1:16

The Morning Watch Carl F. Price, 1913 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Most holy Lord and God of Heaven,
Who to the glowing sky hast given
The fires that in the east are born
With gradual splendors of the morn;

Who, on the fourth day, didst reveal
The sun’s enkindled flaming wheel,
Didst set the moon her ordered ways,
And stars their ever winding maze;

That each in its appointed way
Might separate night from day,
And of the seasons through the year
The well remembered signs declare;

Illuminate our hearts within,
And cleanse our minds from stain of sin;
Unburdened of our guilty load
May we unfettered serve our God.

O Father, that we ask be done,
Through Jesus Christ, Thine only Son;
Who, with the Holy Ghost and Thee,
Doth live and reign eternally.
