Herr! Du hast mein Fleh'n vernommen,
Selig pocht's in meiner Brust;
In die Welt hinaus, ins Leben
Folgt mir nun des Himmels Lust.

Dort auch bist ja Du mir nahe,
Überall und jederzeit;
Aller Orten ist Dein Tempel,
Wo das Herz sich fromm Dir weih't.

Segne, Herr, mich und die meinen!
Segne unsern Lebensgang!
Alles unser Thun und Wirken
Sey ein frommer Lobgesang!
