Liebster Jesu, wir sind hier

T. Clausnitzer. 1671.

Blessed Jesus, at Thy word

We are gather'd all to hear Thee;

Let our hearts and souls be stirr'd

Now to seek and love and fear Thee;

By Thy teachings sweet and holy

Drawn from earth to love Thee solely.

All our knowledge, sense, and sight

Lie in deepest darkness shrouded,

Till Thy Spirit breaks our night

With the beams of truth unclouded;

Thou alone to God canst win us,

Thou must work all good within us.

Glorious Lord, Thyself impart!

Light of light from God proceeding,

Open Thou our ears and heart,

Help us by Thy Spirit's pleading,

Hear the cry Thy people raises,

Hear, and bless our prayers and praises!
