Zum Agnus Dei

Language: German (Deutsch)

Mein Heiland, Herr und Meister!
Dein Mund, so segenreich,
Sprach einst das Wort des Heiles:
»Der Friede sey mit euch!« -
O Lamm, das opfernd tilgte
Der Menschheit schwere Schuld,
Send' uns auch Deinen Frieden
Durch Deine Gnad' und Huld!

In dieses Friedens Palmen
Erstirbt der Erdenschmerz,
Sie wehen Heil und Labung
Ins sturmbewegte Herz;
Und auch die Erdenfreude,
Durch ihn geheiligt, blüht
Entzückender und reiner
Dem seligen Gemüth.

Herr, unsre Lieben alle,
Die nun bereits von hier
Ins Land des Friedens gingen,
Nimm sie, nimm sie zu Dir!
Laß einst sie dort uns finden!
O seliger Verein,
Wenn wir des Himmelsfriedens
Zusammen uns erfreu'n!

Mein Heiland, Herr und Meister,
O sprich erbarmungsreich
Zu uns das Wort des Heiles:
»Der Friede sey mit euch!«
Send' uns den Himmelsfrieden,
Den nie die Erde gibt,
Der nur dem Herzen winket,
Das rein und treu Dich liebt! -
