Hymnus an den heiligen Geist
Language: German (Deutsch)
Herr, unser Gott! erhöre unser Flehen,
Die sehnend auf zu dir, zu dir, Allgüt'ger, sehen;
Herab auf uns sieh', Tröster du,
In unser Herz leg' Himmelsruh'!
Erfülle uns mit Kraft und Glaubensmuth,
Verlass' auf unserm Pfad uns nicht!
Es leite uns zu dem, was recht und gut.
O Herr, verlass' uns nicht!

Note: This is the text which was published with the first edition of Schubert's Hymnus an den heiligen Geist as op. posth. 154 by Anton Diabelli in 1849. Schubert's manuscript conveys a rather different text.
