Senmorta, senkorpa, plej saĝa Sinjor'

Full Text

1 Senmorta, senkorpa, plej saĝa Sinjor',
malantaŭ lumego Vi kaŝas Vin for.
Ni benas kaj gloras Vin, Nom' sen makul',
senmanka, venkanta, la Antaŭtempul'.

2 Sendorma, senforma, en luma silent'
Vi regas la kosmon en plenkompetent'.
La montoj de justo kaj nuboj de am'
sin interplektadas laŭ Via proklam'.

3 Vi donas la vivon al ĉiu vivant',
kaj vivas en ĉiu, Vivanto-Vidant'.
Folioj sur arbo, ni kreskas, ho Di',
kaj velkas, kaj mortas. Konstantas nur Vi.

4 Patrego de gloro kaj lumo kaj pur',
anĝeloj vualas sin, por en obskur'
Vin plene adori. Ho, ni en egal'
komprenu: Vin kaŝas nur luma vual'!
