So ruhig geh' ich meinen Pfad

Language: German (Deutsch)

So ruhig geh' ich meinen Pfad,
  So still ist mir zu Mut;
Es dünkt mir jeder Weg gerad'
  Und jedes Wetter gut.

Wohin mein Weg mich führen mag,
  Der Himmel ist mein Dach,
Die Sonne kommt mit jedem Tag,
  Die Sterne halten Wach'.

Und komm' ich spät und komm' ich früh
  Ans Ziel, das mir gestellt:
Verlieren kann ich mich doch nie,
  O Gott, aus Deiner Welt!
