Representative Text

1 Gelobet sei der Herr,
mein Gott, mein Licht, mein Leben,
mein Schöpfer, der mir hat
mein Leib und Seel' gegeben,
mein Vater, der mich schützt
von Muterleibe an
der alle Augenblick
viel Gut's an mir getan!

2 Gelobet sei der Herr,
mein Gott, mein Heil, mein Leben,
des Vaters liebster Sohn,
der sich für mich gegeben,
der mich erlöset hat
mit seinem teuren Blut,
der mir im Glauben schenkt
das allerhöchste Gut!

3 Gelobet sei der Herr,
mein Gott, mein Trost, mein Leben,
der Vaters werter Geist,
den mir der Sohn gegeben,
der mir mein Herz erquickt,
der mir gibt neue Kraft,
der mir in aller Not
Rat, Trost und Hilfe schafft!

4 Gelobet sei der Herr,
mein Gott, der ewig lebet,
den alles lobet, was
in allen Lüften schwebet!
Gelobet sei der Herr,
des Name heilig heißt,
Gott Vater, Gott der Sohn
und Gott der werte Geist.

5 Dem wir das Heilig jetzt
mit Freuden lassen klingen
und mit der Engel Schar
das Heilig! Heilig! singen,
den herzlich lobt und preist
die ganze Christenheit.
Gelobet sei mein Gott
in alle Ewigkeit!
