Original text and translations

English.png English text

“Night is drawing nigh.”
For all that has been, thanks.
For all that shall be, “Yes!”

Give me a pure heart that I may see thee.
A humble heart, that I may hear thee.
A heart of love, that I may serve thee;
a heart of faith, that I may abide in thee.

Before thee, Father,
in righteousness and humility.
With thee, Brother.
In faith and courage.
In thee, Spirit.
With thee, in stillness.
