Lobe mein Herz deinen Gott

Lobe mein Herz deinen Gott

Author: Johann Olearius
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Lobe, mein herz! deine Gott,
der dir hilft aus aller Noth,
der dir alle Sündenschuld
schenkt aus lauter Gnad und Huld,
der dir hier Gerechtigkeit,
Gnade, trost und Heiligkeit,
und dort giebt die Seligkeit.

2 Da will dein Gott Alles sein,
da wir Gott, dein Freudenschein,
Leib und Seel erneuen ganz,
gleich dem schönen Sonnenglanz;
da ist Gott dein Trost und Schild,
der dein Herz mit Freuden füllt,
weil du bist sein Edenbild.

3 Dir, Herr! zu Lob, Ehr und Dank
will ich meinen Lobgesang
fröhlich singen immerdar
mit der auserwählten Schaar:
denn mein Leid und Seel erfreut
in des Himmels Herrlichkeit
wohnen wird in Ewigkeit.
