Du willst im Dunkeln wohnen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Du willst im Dunkeln wohnen
o ew'ges Licht,
mein thränend Aug' zu schonen,
ich mag es fassen nicht:

du kommst mit deinem Frieden,
o Heil'ger du,
dass mir auch sei beschieden statt
Unruh' mild die Ruh'!

Du schämst dich nicht des Armen,
o reicher Gott,
ach! nahst dich voll Erbarmen trotz aller,
aller Menschen Spott!

Du beugst zu mir dich nieder,
o du allein,
und selig soll ich wieder an deinem Herzen,
deinem Herzen sein, 
selig an deinem Herzen sein.
