Freude soll in deinen Werken sein

Language: German (Deutsch)

Freude soll in deinen Werken sein,
Freude die aus seligem Überschwang,
heimse die Frucht mit vollen Händen ein
und gib wieder, was dir an Ernte gelang.

Freude sollst du den Menschenkindern bringen,
dein Leben helfe Irrende hinauf,
dein Herz berausche sie, dein Tun sei ihr Gelingen,
Freude, schließt alle Türen auf.
