Representative Text

1. Herr Jesu Christe, Gottes Sohn,
Der du vom hohen Himmelsthron
Herab bist kommen in die Welt,
Und uns zu gut dich eingestellt,

2. Wir danken dir mit Herz und Mund
Demütiglich zu aller Stund,
Daß du uns schenkest zum Erbteil
Durch dein Zukunft das ewge Heil.

3. Wir bitten dich, o treuer Herr,
Weil nun das End nicht mehr ist fern,
Du wollest uns zu Gnaden dein
Dir lassen stets befohlen sein.

4. Hilf, daß wir leben würdiglich,
Und in dir sterben seliglich;
Daß wir lieben und loben dich
Hier zeitlich und dort ewiglich.
