English translation

Heiligste Dreieinigkeit,
Holiest Trinity,
Großer Gott der Ehren,
Great God of honor,
Komm doch in der Gnadenzeit
in the time of grace
Bei uns einzukehren,
o come and return to us,
Komm doch in die Herzenshütten,
o come into the tabernacle of our hearts,
Sind sie gleich gering und klein,
though they are small and insignificant,
Komm und laß dich doch erbitten,
come and let Yourself be persuaded,
Komm und kehre / ziehe / bei uns ein!
come and enter within us!
