    Here's a translation I did a few years back of an office hymn that is sung at Vespers during Lent. Cheers!

    Today is the accepted time.
    Christ's healing light, the gift divine
    Shines forth to save the penitent
    To wake the world by means of Lent.
     
    The light of Christ will show the way
    That leads to God's salvation day.
    The rigor of this fasting mends
    The hearts that hateful sinning rends.
     
    Keep all our minds and bodies true
    In sacrifice, O God, to You,
    That we may join, when Lents have ceased,
    The everlasting Paschal Feast.
     
    Let all creation join to raise
    Most gracious Trinity, Your praise.
    And when your love has made us new,
    May we sing new songs, Lord, to You.

    I thought I would bring this up again before Ash Wednesday, and mention that it is now available through OneLicense.
