Die helle Sonn leuchtet jetzt herfür

Representative Text

1 Die helle Sonn' leucht't jetzt herfür,
fröhlich vom Schlaf aufstehen wir,
Gott Lob, der uns heut' diese Nacht
behüt't hat vor des Teufels Macht.

2 Herr Christ, den Tag uns auch behüt'
vor Sünd' und Schand', durch deine Güt',
laß deine liebe Engelein
unser Hüter und Wächetr sein,

3 Daß unser Herz G'horsam leb',
dein'm Wort und Will'n nicht widerstreb',
daß wir dich stets vor Augen han
in allem, was wir heben an!

4 Laß unser Werk geraten wohl,
was ein jeder ausrichten soll,
daß unsre Arbeit, Müh und fleiß
gereich' zu dein'm Lob, Ehr' und Preis!
