What are the signs of the morning?
God, who created the light,
speak through the gloom that enfolds us,
when breaks the dawn on our sight,
when comes the end of our night.

These be the tokens of promise:
one is a bright star above,
one a poor child in a manger,
symbols of faith and of love.
Hope comes with faith
and with love!
