Representative Text

1 Wehrlos und verlassen sehnt sich
Oft mein Herz nach stiller Ruh’;
Doch Du deckest mit dem Fittich
Deiner Liebe sanft mich zu.

Refrain:
Unter Deinem sanften Fittich
Find ich Frieden, Trost und Ruh,
Denn Du schirmest mich so freundlich
Schützest mich und deckst mich zu.

2 Drückt mich Kummer, Müh’ und Sorgen,
Meine Zuflucht bist nur Du,
Rettest mich aus allen Ängsten,
Tröstest mich und deckst mich zu. [Refrain]

3 Sicher bin ich und geborgen,
Denn bei Dir ist süße Ruh’;
Mag es auch im Leben stürmen,
Herr, Dein Fittich deckt mich zu. [Refrain]

4 Kommt dann meine letzte Stunde,
Geh’ ich ein zur ew’gen Ruh’;
Und Du deckst mit Deinen Flügeln
Ewiglich Dein Kindlein zu. [Refrain]
