Du hoher Gott im Himmel
Mach's gnädiglich mit mir!
Es ruft aus dem Getümmel
Dein armes Kind zu dir.

Das treiben wilde Wellen,
Und treiben mit ihm Spiel,
Herr, laß mich nicht zerschellen,
Herr, weise mich zum Ziel!

Nur e i n e n treuen Rather
Weiß ich in solchem Streit,
Das bist du, ew'ger Vater,
So nahe und so weit.

Ich will dich lieben fassen,
Du bist es, der mich hält:
Wirst mich ja nicht verlassen
In dieser wüsten Welt!
