Representative Text

1 Jesu, bittend kommen wir
mit den Deinen jetzt zu dir;
hör' auf unser kindlich flehn,
was wir bitten, laß geschehn!

2 Jesu,ziehe bei uns ein,
laß uns ganz dein eigen sein;
schenk uns allen deien Geist,
den dein teures Wort verheißt.

3 Laß dein wort zu dieser Zeit
kräftig schallen weit und breit;
allen Heiden werde kund
deiner Gnade Friedensbund!

4 Tu der Völker Türen auf;
deines Himmelreiches Lauf
hemme keine List noch Macht;
schaffe Licht in dunkler Nacht!

5 Gib den Boten Kraft und Mut,
Glaubenshoffnung, Liebesglut;
laß viel Früchte deiner Gnad;
folgen ihrer Tränensaat!

6 Zion, danke deinem Herrn!
Was du bittest, tut er gern;
ja, er kommt mit seinem Reich:
was ist seinen Freuden gleich?
