Holy Spirit, God of love, Who our night dost brighten

Full Text

Holy Spirit, God of love,
Who our darkness brightens,
Poured on us from heav'n above,
And our faith enlightens,
In your light we gather here;
Show us that Christ's promise clear
Is Amen forever.
Jesus, our ascended Lord,
Oh, fulfill your gracious Word;
Bless us with your favor!
