You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 17, we are $5,700 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Gottes Auge

Language: German (Deutsch)

    Am hohen Himmel blinken
Viel Sternlein wunderbar,
Sie leuchten durch das Dunkel
So lieblich und so klar!
    Also auch Gottes Auge
Gar treu und helle wacht;
So leuchtet Seine Liebe
Auch in der dunklen Nacht.
    Der alle Sternlein zählet,--
Der kennt und liebt auch mich;
Der ihre Wege lenket,--
Führt mich auch gnädiglich!
    Wie soll ich, Gott, Dir danken?
Ich bin so arm und klein!
Doch will ich jetzt und ewig
Dein treues Kindlein sein!

Confirmed with Kinder-Lieder von G. Ch. Dieffenbach, Mainz: Verlag von C.G. Kunze, 1854, page 25
