German Text

Was des Höchsten Glanz erfüllt,
Wird in keine Nacht verhüllt,
Was des Höchsten heilges Wesen
Sich zur Wohnung auserlesen,
Wird in keine Nacht verhüllt,
Was des Höchsten Glanz erfüllt.

English Translation

Whatever is filled by the radiance of the Highest
will never be overshadowed by any night,
whatever the Almighty’s holy being
has chosen for a dwelling-place
will never be overshadowed by any night,
whatever is filled by the radiance of the Highest.
