Wenn im Menschenleben Jahr um Jahr entflieht

Representative Text

1 Wenn im Menschenleben Jahr um Jahr entflieht
und das Auge fragend in die Zukunft sieht,

2 gibt's doch eine Brücke, die durch's Nebelgrauen
uns hinüberleitet, und sie heißt Vertrauen!

3 Dünkte sie uns manchmal wie ein schmaler Steg,
endete sie immer auf dem rechten Weg.

4 Ach, zwei starke Arme breiteten sich doch
über unser Leben — warum graut uns noch?

5 Ohne in die Tiefe unter uns zu schaun,
laßt uns fröhlich wagen, Jesus zu vertraun!
