English translation

Lass dein Wort, das uns erschallt,
Let your word, that resounds to us
mit entzückender Gewalt
with delightful power,
tief in unsre Herzen dringen!
pierce deep into our hearts!
Lass es gute Früchte bringen,
Let it bear good fruit,
die dein Vaterherz erfreun.
that will gladden your fatherly heart.
Lass uns dir, allmächt’ge Güte,
Let us, almighty Goodness, dedicate our
unsre Brust zum Tempel weihn!
breast to be your temple!
