Original text and translations
God, who at this time didst teach the hearts of thy faithful people,
by the sending to them the light of thy Holy Spirit:
Grant us by the same Spirit to have a right judgment in all things,
and evermore to rejoice in his holy comfort,
through the merits of Christ Jesus our Saviour,
who liveth and reigneth with thee in the unity of the same Spirit,
one God, world without end,
