Full Text

1 Ja, wie lieblich ist's und fein,
durch den Herrn geeint zu sein
und in Seiner Jünger Kreis
Ihm zu bringen Lob und Preis!

2 Wie des Hermons frischer Tau
mild erquickt die dürre Au,
so stärkt uns in Freud und Leid
Jesus durch Einmütigkeit.

3 Alle rühmen Seine Huld,
Seine Langmut und Geduld,
Seine Gnade, Seine Treu,
wie sie alle Morgen neu.

4 Halleluja sei dem Herrn
dargebracht von nah und fern!
Dank sei Ihm in dieser Zeit,
Lob und Ehr in Ewigkeit!
