We Now Implore God the Holy Ghost
Martin Luther, 1524; German text
|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.
2. Shine in our hearts, O most precious Light,
|3. Thou sacred Love, grace on us bestow,|
Set our hearts with heavenly fire aglow
That with hearts united we love each other,
Of one mind, in peace with every brother.
Lord, have mercy!
4. Thou highest Comfort in every need,
