Representative Text

1 Wer nur mit seinem Gott verreiset,
der findet immer Bahn gemacht,
weil Er ihn lauter Wege weiset,
auf welchen stets Sein Auge wacht.
Hier gilt die Losung früh und spat:
Wohl dem, der Ihn zum Führer hat!

Die Engel, die zu Jakob kamen,
send´auch zu unserm Schutz herab!
So ziehen wir im Frieden fort;
Gott ist mit uns, Gott unser Hort.
