Representative Text

1 Gott Vater! höre unsre Bitt,
theil diesem Kind den Segen mit,
erzeig ihm deine Gnade.
Es sei dein Kind, nimm weg sein Sünd,
das ihm dieselb nicht schade.

2 Herr Christe! nimm es gnädig auf.
Durch dieses Bad der heilgen Tauf
zu deinem Glied und Erben,
damit es dein mög allzeit sein,
im Leben und im Sterben.

3 Und du, o allerwerthster Geist!
sammt Vater und dem Sohn gepreist,
wollst gleichfalls zu uns kommen,
damit jetzund in deinen Bund
es werde aufgenommen.

4 O heilge Dreieinigkeit!
der sei Lob, Ehr und Dank
bereit't für diese große Güte.
Gieb, daß dafür wir dienen dir,
vor Sünden uns behüte!
