Lehr' mich beten,
Gott der Herrlichkeit!
Kindlich vor dich treten,
Wie das Herz gebeut,
Wie das Herz gebeut.

Mach' unschuldig,
Mache fromm dein Kind,
Denn die Welt ist schuldig,
Übervoll von Sünd',
Übervoll von Sünd'.

Nach dem Bilde
Schufest du mich dein,
Vater aller Milde,
Laß mich heilig sein,
Laß mich heilig sein!

Nimm die Erde,
Nimm die Schuld von mir!
Daß ich Engel werde,
Wohne du in mir,
Wohne du in mir!

O Gedanke!
Himmelschein voll Licht!
Erd' und Himmel wanke!
Gott verlässt mich nicht,
Gott verlässt mich nicht!
