Morgenglanz der Ewigkeit

Full Text

1 Morgenglanz der Ewigkeit,
Licht vom unerschöpften Lichte,
schick uns diese Morgenzeit
deine Strahlen zu Gesichte
und vertreib durch deine Macht
unsre Nacht.

2 Morgenstern von Ewigkeit,
alle Finsternis vernichte!
Gottes ewge Herrlichkeit
Strahlt aus Deinem Angesichte!
Fülle Du mit Deinem Schein
Unser Sein!

3 Gib Du, daß wir alles hier
In dem Licht der Wahrheit schätzen,
in Gerechtigkeit nie verletzen,
daß Dein Friede uns erfüllt,
fest umhüllt!

4 Laß durch dies Welt uns gehen
Im Bewußtsein Deiner Liebe,
damit Satans Widerstehn
niemals unsern Glauben trübe!
Dein Herrlichkeit und Macht
Sei uns Kraft!

5 Leite Du uns in dem Streit,
daß der Erdkreis Dir gehöret,
Sonne der Gerechtigkeit,
Du, der Satans Macht zerstöret,
brich hervor in all der Pracht
Deiner Macht!
