Representative Text

1 Gott Vater! deine Liebesflammen
entzünden den vergnügten Geist
und fügen mich und dich zusammen,
daß diesen Bund kein Fall zerreißt;
so trifft der Liebe Sehnsucht ein:
du wirst mein ewig Erbgut sein.

2 Gott Sohn! du bist für mich gestorben,
du lebst und herrschest auch für mich;
mir, mir hast du das Heil erworben,
du liebst mich, ich liebe dich;
so trifft der Glaube selig ein:
du wirst mein ewig Erbgut sein.

3 Gott heilger Geist! Licht, Trost und leben

ist Alles mir von dir gegeben,
du leitest mich zur Seligkeit.
So grifft die Hoffnung fröhlich ein:
du wirst mein ewig Erbgut sein.
