In Dir ist Freude In allem Leide

1 In Dir ist Freude,
in allem Leide,
Du süßer Jesu Christ:
durch Dich wir haben
himmlische Gaben,
der Du wahrer Heiland bist.
Hilfest von Schanden,
rettest von Banden;
wer Dir vertrauert,
hat wohl gebauet,
wird ewig bleiben,
Ist Deiner Güte
steht uns'r Gemüthe,
an Dir wir kleben
iim tod und Leben,
nichts kann uns scheiden,

2 Wenn wir Dich haben,
kann uns nicht schaden
Teufel, Welt, Sünd' oder Tod.
Du hast's in Händen,
kannst alles wenden,
wie nur heißen mag die Noth,
Drum wir Dich ehren,
Dein Lob vermehren
mit hellem Schalle,
freuen uns alle
zu dieser Stunde,
Wir jubiliren
und triumphiren,
rühmen und leben
Dein' Macht dort oben,
mit Herz und Munde,
