Ach. mein Herz, ergib dich drein

Full Text

1 Ach meine Herze! gieb dich drein,
nimm mit deinem Gott verwillen,
nur dein Jesus kann allein
alle deine Sorgen stillen;
richte dich nach seiner Huld,
er giebt Trost und auch Geduld.

2 Gehst du hier die Dornenbahn,
ist dein Trank vermischt mit Gallen,
nimm es nur geduldig an,
also hat es Gott gefallen;
glaube nur, was dieser thut,
das ist Alles recht und gut.

3 Bleibe deinem Gott getreu;
ob das kreuz gleich bringet Schmerzen,
hast zu dennoch stets dabei
Ruh und Trost in deinem Herzen:
nichts besiegt auf dieser Welt
einen Sinn, der Gott gefällt.

4 Schicke dich in Gottes Brauch,
Christen müssen dulden, hoffen;
hat doch deinen Heiland auch
manches Ungemach getroffen;
o! er weiß, wie dir es thut,
leide nur mit frohem Muth.

5 Kronen folgen auf den Streit,
kämpfe nur mit festem Glauben;
Jesus ist ja nimmer weit,
Niemand kann sein Herz dir rauben;
bete, leide, lebe rein,
selig wird dein Ende sein.
