“Come to me”, says God’s Son,
“all you who are burdened,
heavily laden with sins,
people young and old, men and women,
what I want to give you
will cure your troubles.

Let all together praise our God
Upon His lofty throne,
He hath His heavens unclosed today,
And given to us His Son.

And dwell with God eternally,

The ten commandments keep, for thus

Our God himself biddeth us.

Nun bitten wir den Heiligen Geist (2 versus) (BuxWV 208, BuxWV 209)

 

We now implore the Holy Ghost
For the true faith, which we need the most,
That in our last moments He may befriend us
And, as homeward we journey, attend us.
Lord, have mercy.
