O Lord Jesus, sweetest Guest,
mayest Thou have come happily to me,
Thy poor and humble servant.
Mayest Thou have entered in blessing
under this mean and lowly roof.
Blessed art Thou, O Lord, in the highest,
for that Thou hast come into my heart,
Thou Day-spring from on high.
O King of peace,
drive from my heart all vain and idle thoughts,
that my soul may imitate and love Thee only,
the Author of peace.
For what beside Thee, O Thou peace,
Thou calm and sweetness of my heart,
should my soul seek for or desire?
