Der zu des Vaters rechten sitzt

Der zu des Vaters rechten sitzt

Author: Philipp Friederich Hiller
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Der zu des Vaters Rechten sitzt,
der bittest für die Seinen:
so find sie vor dem Zorn beschützt,
getröstet in dein Weinen,
befreit von Noth,
erlöst vom Tod,
und dürfen nach dem Sterben
mit ihrem Heiland erben.

2 Herr Jesu, dir gebührt der Ruhm,
nur du kannst für uns beten;
du Priester in dem Heiligthum,
du kannst dein Volk vertreten;
kein anders Blut
ist und zu gut
zum Opfer fe geflossen,
du hast's für uns vergossen.

3 Daher du die Versohnung bist
dein Vater, der Gerechte;
da, was sonst Mensch heißt, Sünder ist,
und Engel deine Knechte;
du bist der Sohn,
du hast den Thron,
und nur in deinem Namen ist
die Verheißung Amen.

4 Wir ehren dich, wir glauben dir;
dein Volk, das du erworben,
jauchzt dir ein Hallelujah für,
weil du für uns gestorben.
Ach bitte du
nur immerzu
für uns aus diesem Grunde,
auch in der Todesstunde.
