Herr, mein Hirt, Brunn aller Freuden

Full Text

1 Herr, mein Hirt, Brunn aller Freuden!
Du bist mein,
Ich bin Dein –
Niemand kann uns scheiden.
Ich bin Dein, weil Du Dein Leben
Und Dein Blut,
Mir zu gut,
Hast dahingegeben.

2 Nimmer kann ich mehr erbeben.
Deine Huld
Nahm die Schuld,
Gab mir ew'ges Leben.
Freudig darf ich aufwärts schauen,
Hier im Streit,
Not und Leid,
Darf auf Dich ich trauen.

3 Du kannst mich ja nicht mehr lassen,
Deine Lieb,
Die Dich trieb,
Wird mich stets umfassen.
Drum sei Dir auch Preis und Ehre,
Teurer Hort,
Hier und dort
In der Heil'gen Chöre!
