O, let us exalt our dear Lord and proclaim,
In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!
As songs of the angels in sweetest accord,
Our thanks and our praises shall rise to the Lord.

Translated by Charles W. Schaeffer, 1866, alt.
Text from Romans 8:15
Hermannburg. 8. 7. 8. 7. 7. 7.

Come, O come, Thou quick'ning Spirit,
Who forever art divine;
Let Thy power never fail us,
Deign within our hearts to shine.
Thus will grace and truth and light
Banish all the gloom of night.

Grant our hearts in fullest measure
Wisdom, counsel, purity,
That we ever may be seeking
Only that which pleaseth Thee.
Let Thy knowledge spread and grow,
Working error's overthrow.

Holy Spirit, strong and mighty,
Thou who makest all things new,
Make Thy work within us perfect,
Help us by Thy Word so true.
Arm us with that trusty sword,
Strength to conquer thus afford.

In the faith make Thou us steadfast,
Let not Satan, death nor shame
Of our confidence deprive us;
Lord, our refuge is Thy name.
When the flesh inclines to ill,
Let Thy Word prove stronger still.

When the hour of death approaches,
Let our hopes grow yet more bright,
For we are the heirs of Heaven;
In Thy glorious courts of light.
Fairer far than voice can tell,
May we ever with Thee dwell.
