The spirit of love
Fills the cosmos
And He who keeps the universe together
Knows every sound


The spirit rises
And His enemies disintegrate
And those who hate Him
Flee from His sight


Send out your spirit
And life begins to form
And thus


Come, spirit, and fill
The hearts of your people
And light in everyone
The fire of your eternal life


(English translation of the words spoken in German language)
