'On smooth-gliding wheel the sun
Makes the day to darkness run;
So with silent step and fast
Life draws near its goal at last.

Christ, who, nailed upon the cross
Stretched thine arms to all the lost,
Make us love the cross, and then,
When thy voice is heard again,
Give us grace that when we die,
We in thine embrace may lie.'

The Roman Breviary is a breviary of the Roman Rite in the Catholic Church. It is a liturgical book.                                                          It contains public or canonical prayers, hymns, the Psalms, readings, and notations for everyday use.
