Unser täglich Brot gib uns heute

Language: German (Deutsch)

Der du im Feld die Vöglein nährst
Und Speise mir und Trank gewährst,
Dir dank' ich, daß du mein gedenkst,
Mir deines Segens Fülle schenkst.

Doch leb' ich nicht von Brot allein,
Drum mögst du, Herr, stets mit mir sein,
Weil jedes Wort der Seele frommt,
Das aus dem Munde Gottes kommt.

Und Speise, die mein Geist begehrt,
Sei mir im Tode noch gewährt:
Daß Liebe einst ein Kreuz mir setzt,
Und es mit Herzenstränen netzt.
