Jesu, du allein Sollst mein Führer sein

Jesu, du allein Sollst mein Führer sein

Representative Text

1 Jesu! du allein
sollst mein Führer sein,
zeige mir selbst deine Wege,
deiner Wahrheit schmale Stege;
deiner Wahrheit Grund
ist dein Wort und Bund.

2 Gründe, Herr! dabei,
stete Furcht und Scheu
in mir und in meiner Seelen
denen Weg nicht zu verfehlen;
deine Furcht bewahr

3 Weil du kommen bist,
was verirret ist
wiederum zurecht zu führen
und kein Schäflein zu verlieren,
darum steht dein Knecht:
führe mich zurecht!

4 Guter, treuer Hirt!
ich bin ganz verirrt;
ein verloren Schaaf auf Erden,
führe mich zu deinen Heerden,
führe mich dahin,
wo ich bei dir bin.
