Savior and regenerator!
Thee alone, God we own,
Father and Creator.

Word incarnate, we adore Thee!
Hosts above, God of Love,
Cast their crowns before Thee.

Father, Son and Ho­ly Spir­it,
One in Thee, Lord, we see,
Who Thy grace inherit.

May Thy Word be our instructor,
Night and day, on our way,
Our divine conductor!

Visit us with Thy sal­va­tion;
Let Thy care still be near,
Round our habitation.

Jesus, our divine protector,
Guide us still, let Thy will
Be our sole director!
