English Translation

1

Herr Jesu Christ! dich zu uns wend,
Dein' Heil'gen Geist du zu uns send:
Mit Hilf' und Gnad', er uns regier
Und uns den Weg zur Wahrheit führ.

Lord Jesus Christ! Turn towards us,
send your Holy Spirit to us:
with her help and grace may he rule us
and lead us on the way to truth.

2

Thu auf den Mund zum Lobe dein,
Bereit das Herz zur Andacht fein,
Den Glauben mehr, stärk den Verstand,
Daß uns dein Nam werd wohl bekannt.

Open our mouths to your praise,
make our hearts ready for worship,
increase our faith, strengthen our understanding
so that your name will be well known to us.

3

Bis wir singen mit Gottes Heer:
Heilig, heilig ist Gott, der Herr,
Und schauen dich von Angesicht
In ew'ger Freud' und sel'gem Licht.

Until we sing with athe host of God:
holy, holy is God, the Lord,
and behold you face-to-face
in eternal joy and blessed light’

4

Ehr sei dem Vater und dem Sohn,
Dem heil'gen Geist in Einem Thron,
Der heiligen Dreieinigkeit
Sie Lob und Preis in Ewigkeit.

Honour to the Father and to the son
and to the Holy Spirit, on one throne,
to the holy Trinity
praise and glory in eternity.
