Gib uns deine milde Hand!

Language: German (Deutsch)

Gib uns deine milde Hand!
Von der Mutter Hand gerissen
Irren wir in Finsternissen
Kinder durch ein fremdes Land.

Manchmal wenn es dunkel war,
Schenkte eine Heimatweise
Deiner Stimme wunderbar
Licht und Trost der bangen Reise.

Wandrer ohne Ziel und Pfad
Irren wir in dunklen Weiten;
Wolle du uns gnädig leiten,
Bis der große Morgen naht!
