Hör' uns, Allmächtiger!

Language: German (Deutsch)

      Hör' uns, Allmächtiger!
      Hör' uns, Allgütiger!
Himmlischer [Führer]1 der Schlachten!
      Vater, Dich preisen wir.
      Vater, wir danken Dir,
Daß wir zur Freiheit erwachten!
      Wie auch die Hölle braus't,
      Gott, Deine starke Faust
Stürzt das Gebäude der Lüge.
      Führ' uns, Herr Zebaoth,
      Führ' uns, dreiein'ger Gott,
Führ' uns zur Schlacht, und zum Siege!
      Führ' uns! -- Fall' unser Los
      Auch tief in Grabes Schooß:
Lob doch und Preis Deinem Namen!
      Reich, Kraft und Herrlichkeit
      Sind Dein in Ewigkeit.
Führ' uns, Allmächtiger! -- Amen.
