        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!
