Original text and translations
Blessing and brightness, wisdom, thanksgiving,
Great power and might to the king who rules over all.
Glory and honour and goodwill,
Praise and the sublime song of minstrels,
Overflowing love from every heart to the king of heaven and earth.
To the chosen trinity has been joined
Before all, after all, universal blessing,
Blessing and everlasting blessing,
Blessing everlasting and blessing.
