Was des Höchsten Glanz erfüllt,
Whatever is filled by the radiance of the Highest
Wird in keine Nacht verhüllt,
will never be overshadowed by any night,
Was des Höchsten heilges Wesen
whatever the Almighty’s holy being
Sich zur Wohnung auserlesen,
has chosen for a dwelling-place
Wird in keine Nacht verhüllt,
will never be overshadowed by any night,
Was des Höchsten Glanz erfüllt.
whatever is filled by the radiance of the Highest.
