(St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)
1. Holy Spirit, God of love,
Who our night dost brighten,
Shed on us from heaven above,
Now our faith enlighten.
In Thy light we gather here;
Show us that Christ's promise clear
Is Amen forver.
Jesus, our ascended Lord,
Oh, fulfil Thy gracious Word:
Bless us with Thy favor!
