O holy virgin! clad in purest white, Unlock heaven's golden gates, and issue forth; Awake the dawn that sleeps in heaven; let light [Rise]1 from the chambers of the east, and bring The honey'd dew that cometh on waking day. O radiant morning, salute the sun Roused like a huntsman to the chase, and with Thy buskin'd feet appear [upon]2 our hills. [O radiant morning appear on our hills]3
