Jesus soll die Losung sein

Representative Text

1 Jesus soll die Losung sein,
da ein neues Jahr erschienen;
Jesu Name soll allein
denen zum Paniere dienen,
die in seinem Bunde stehn
und auf seinem Wege gehn.

2 Jesu Name, Jesu Wort
soll in den Geminden schallen;
und so oft wir nach dem Ort,
der nach ihm genannt ist, wallen,
mache seines Namens Ruhm
unser Herz zum Heiligthum.

3 Unsre Wege wollen wir
nun in Jesu Namen gehen;
geht uns dieser Leitstern für,
so wird Alles wohl bestehen,
und durch diesen Gnadenschein
Alles voller Segen sein.

4 Alle Sorgen, alles Leid
soll sein Name uns versüßen;
so wird alle Bitterkeit
uns zu Honig werden müssen.
Jesu Nam sei Sonn und Schild,
welcher allen Kummer stillt.
