Chorale Text
German:
Herr Jesu Christ, dich zu uns wend,
Dein heilgen Geist du zu uns send!
Mit Lieb und Gnad, Herr, uns regier
Und uns den Weg zur Wahrheit führ.
--Wilhelm II, Duke of Saxe-Weimar, Gotha, 1651 [?]

English:
Lord Jesus Christ, be present now!
And let Thy Holy Spirit bow
All hearts in love and fear today,
To hear the truth and keep Thy way.
--tr. Catherine Winkworth
