O Lord, give thy Holy Spirit into our hearts,
and lighten our understanding,
that we may dwell in the fear of thy Name,
all the days of our life,
that we may know thee, the only true God,
and Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent.

German.png German translation

O Herr, sende deinen Heiligen Geist in unsere Herzen
und erleuchte unseren Verstand,
damit es uns wohl ergeht in der Furcht des Herzens
alle Tage unseres Lebens;
damit wir dich erkennen können, den einzig wahren Gott
und Jesus Christus, den du gesandt hast.

Hungarian.png Hungarian translation

Uram, add szívünkbe Szentlelkedet
és világosítsd meg értelmünket,
hogy Neved félelmében éljünk
életünk minden napján,
hogy megismerjünk Téged, az egyetlen igaz Istent
és Jézus Krisztust, akit küldtél.
