Komm, heiliger Geist, Herre Gott,
erfüll mit deiner Gnaden Gut
deiner Gläubigen Herz, Mut und Sinn,
dein brünstig Lieb entzünd in ihn.
O Herr, durch deines Lichtes Glast
zu dem Glauben versammelt hast
das Volk aus aller Welt Zungen;
das sei dir, Herr, zu Lob gesungen.

Come, Holy Spirit, Lord God,
fill with your manifold goodness
the heart, spirit and mind of your believers,
kindle your ardent love in them.
O Lord, who by your splendid light
hath gathered in faith
people from all the tongues of the world;
so, Lord, that praise may there be sung unto you.
