Representative Text

1 In Gottes Namen fahren wir,
sein Hülf und Gnad begehren wir;
des Vaters Güt behüt uns heut,
bewahr auch unser Seel und Leib.
Kyrieleis.

2 Christus sei unser Geleitsmann
bleib stetig bei uns auf der Bahn,
und wend von uns des Feindes List,
auch was sein'm Wort zuwider ist.
Kyrieleis.

3 Der heilge Geist auch ob uns halt
mit seinen Gaben mannigfalt.
Er tröst und stärk uns in der Noth,
und führ uns wieder heim zu Gott.
Kyrieleis.
