Aus Erbarmen nimm mich Armen

Representative Text

1 Aus Erbarmen nimm mich Armen,
nimm mich, Jesus, wie ich bin!
Dir, dem Einen, Heilgen, Reinen,
Dir gehöre ich forthin.

Herr, ich suche, Herr, ich finde
meine Ruhe nur in Dir,
gib den Segen Deinem Kinde
und bewahre Du ihn mir!

2 Auf Dich schauend, Dir vertrauend
will ich meine Straße ziehn.
Halt mich immer, laß mich nimmer,
Herr, von Deiner Seite fliehn! [Refrain]

3 Wird es trübe — Deine Liebe
leuchtet mir mit hellem Strahl.
Gott der Wahrheit und der Klarheit,
führe mich im finstern Tal! [Refrain]

4 Dir ergeben will ich leben,
will in Deinem Lichte stehn,
bis da taugen meine Augen,
Dich von Angesicht zu sehn. [Refrain]
