Hin zu Jesus möcht' ich eilen

Representative Text

1 Hin zu Jesus möcht' ich eilen,
Heim zu meinem teuren Herrn!
Ewig, ewig bei Ihm weilen,
Dort, wo Sünd' und Kummer fern.

2 Möchte dieser Welt entfliehen,
Dieser Zeiten Eitelkeit,
Heimwärts, heimwärts möcht' ich ziehen
In des Lammes Herrlichkeit!

3 O mein Jesus, welch Entzücken
Wird's für meine Seele sein,
Dich verherrlicht zu erblicken,
Ewig Dir mein Lob zu weihn!

4 Komm, Herr Jesus, hör' das Flehen,
Führ die Braut zur Hochzeit ein!
Heut' noch möcht' ich zu Dir gehen,
Ewig, ewig bei Dir sein!
