By this we know that we remain in him, and h e is us,
that he has given a portion of his Spirit to us.
And we have seen and bear witness
that the Father has sent his son as saviour of the world.
Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God
– God remains in them and they in God.
And we know and have believed the love which God has in us.
Be thou a bright flame before me,
Be thou a guiding star above me
Be thou a smooth path below me
Be thou a kindly shepherd behind me
Today – tonight -forever
