Du bist allein der wahre Friede, 
du bist allein die wahre Ruh;
o klinge fort in meinem Liede,
Herr Jesu Christ, nur du, nur du!

Ach, ausser dir ist alles Plage,
und Unruh alles nur und Last,
und ohne Trost bleibt jede Klage,
und jede Qual bleibt ohne Rast!

In deinem Frieden will ich leben,
in deinem Frieden schlafen ein,
in deinem Frieden einst entschweben,
in deinem Frieden selig sein!
