A Midday Breviary Translation

Rector Potens (Sext Chant of the Breviary)

Rector powerful, veracious God,
Who temper the vicissitudes of things,
You illuminate the morning with splendor,
and the midday with fire:

Extinguish the flames of contention,
take away the heat of harm,
confer health upon the body,
and true peace to the heart.

Stand ready most pious Father,
and You, Only Equal to the Father,
with the Spirit Paraclete,
reigning through all times/worlds.

-Plinthos Translation
