Wer stand am See Tiberias

Language: German (Deutsch)

Erster Chor.
Wer stand am See Tiberias
Im weißen Kleid?
Zweiter Chor.
Der, dem die Augen waren naß
Um unser Leid.
Erster Chor.
Um unser Leid?
Zweiter Chor.
Um ew'ges Leid!
Erster Chor.
Wer tilgt das ew'ge Leid?
Zweiter Chor.
Wer stand am See Tiberias,
Im weißen Lammes Kleid,
Beide Chöre.
Mensch, wenn Dein Auge Dir wird naß
Um unser ew'ges Leid,
Winkt Dir vom See Tiberias
Der Held in weißen Kleid.
