Representative Text

1 Gott Lob, der Tag ist nun dahin:
drum ich, mein Gott, der dankbar bin,
das ich den Abend hab erlebt,
und deine Gnad noch ob mir schwebt.

2 Ach Herr, sein gnädig, hab Geduld,
vergieb mir alle Sündenschuld;
dein heilger Engel mich bewahr
vor aller Angst, Noth und Gefahr.

3 Laß mich auch mit der Morgenstund
aufwachen fröhlich und gesund,
das ich hier deine Ehr ausbriet
und dich dort lob in Ewigkeit.
