written as 177
Lord Jesus Christ, turn to us, send your holy spirit to us, rule over us with help and mercy, and lead us on the path to the truth. 2. Open the mouth for your praise, prepare the heart for fine devotion, the faith strengthens reason more, that your name is well known to us.

[upper right]
3. Until we sing with God’s army, holy, holy is God, the Lord, and look into your countenance in eternal joy and blessed light. 4. Honor be to the Father and the Son, the holy spirit in one throne, the holy trinity be praised and lauded in eternity.

the 81st Psalm
Sing with a free voice to God, who is almighty. Joyfully praise him, sing him praises, to God, the God of Jacob, diligently and devotionally. 2. A song of praise you want to sing to him. Let ring the sound of harps, and the drums’ clank, also the echo of the Psalms, together with the lutes.

[lower right]
In the new moon, let echo joyfully the sound of trombones, for in this time of the year, we are in joyfulness constantly. 4. God has given the command to live according to the people of Israel and Joseph’s family, as to a right and given testimony.
