Fluorescent Clock Rewiring


I recently purchased a clock that contains a round fluorescent tube.
I opened it up because the light failed to light when plugged in.
I found the wire connectors had fallen off and were loose in the unit.
Now I need to reconnect the wires correctly. I have the hot wire (plug) coming into the unit and two black wires on what appears to be a magnetic ballast and two other wires running to the bulb.
I need to know what wires get connected together.Thanks for any help you can give me.
