Representative Text

1. Im namen Gottes reisen wir,
Sein heil'ger engel geh' uns für,
Wie sein'm volk in Egyptenland,
Das entging Pharaonis hand.
Kyrie Eleison.

2. Herr! du woll'st unser g'leitsmann sein,
Und mit uns gehen aus und ein,
Und zeigen alle steig' und steg',
Wehre dem unfall auf dem weg'.
Kyrie Eleison.

3. So wird kein berg, noch tiefes thal,
Kein wasser uns irr'n überall,
Fröhlich komm'n wir an unsern ort,
Wenn du uns gnädig hilfest fort.
Kyrie Eleison.

4. Herr Christ! du bist der rechte weg
Zum himmel und der ein'ge steg,
Hilf uns pilgrim' in's vaterland,
Weil du dein blut hast dran gewand't.
Kyrie Eleison.
