Original text and translations
Purest and Highest,
Wisest and most Just,
There is no truth save only in thy trust,
Thou dost the mind from earthly dreams recall,
And bring thro' Christ to him for whom are all.
Eternal Glory, all men thee adore,
who art and shalt be worship’d evermore.
Us whom thou makest comfort with thy might,
and lead us to enjoy thy heavenly light.
