Mir ist so wohl in Gottes Haus

Language: German (Deutsch)

Mir ist so wohl in Gottes Haus,
Ich kann es gar nicht sagen,
Es bricht mein Aug' in Thränen aus,
Das Herz fängt an zu schlagen.

O Thräne, warum brichst du aus?
O Herz, was soll dein Schlagen?
Es wird der Geist in's Vaterhaus,
Der Leib zur Ruh getragen.
