Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

In tenebris nostrae et densa caligine mentis,
cum nihil est toto pectore consilii,
turbati erigimus, Deus, ad te lumina cordis
nostra, tuamque fides solius orat opem.
Tu rege consiliis actus, Pater optime, nostros,
nostrum opus ut laudi serviat omne tuae.

German.png German translation

In den Finsternissen und dem dichten Nebel unseres Geistes,
wenn in der ganzen Brust kein Rat sich findet,
erheben wir verwirrt die Augen unseres Herzens, Gott, zu dir,
und deinen Beistand allein erbittet der Glaube.
Lenke du mit Weisungen unsere Taten, bester Vater,
damit unser ganzes Tun zu deinem Lob diene.
