O lux beata Trinitas
Language: Latin 
Available translation(s): ENG
O lux beata Trinitas
Et principalis Unitas,
Iam sol recedit igneus,
Infunde lumen cordibus.

Te mane laudum carmine,
Te deprecemur vesperi,
Te nostra supplex gloria,
Per cuncta laudet saecula.

Deo Patri sit gloria,
Eiusque soli Filio,
Cum Spiritu Paraclito,
Et nunc et in perpetuum.
Amen.

O lux beata trinitas
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Latin 
Available translation(s): FIN
Der du bist drei in Einigkeit,
Ein wahrer Gott von Ewigkeit;
Die Sonn' mit dem Tag von uns weicht:
Laß leuchten uns dein göttlich Licht.

Des Morgens, Gott, dich loben wir,
Des Abends auch beten für dir,
Unser armes Lied rühmt dich
Jetzt und immer und ewiglich.

Gott Vater, dem sei ewig Ehr,
Gott Sohn der ist der einig' Herr,
Und dem Tröster heiligen Geist,
Von nun an bis in Ewigkeit.

K. Hasse sets stanzas 1-2
