Trost der Erlösung

Language: German (Deutsch)

Gedanke, der uns Leben gilt,
welch Herz vermag dich auszudenken!
"Also hat Gott die Welt geliebt,
uns seinen Sohn zu schenken!"

Nimm mir den Trost, daß Jesus Christ
am Kreuz nicht meine Schuld getragen,
nicht Gott und mein Erlöser ist:
So werd ich, angstvoll zagen.

Ich weiß, daß mein Erlöser lebt,
daß ich, erwecket aus der Erde,
wenn er sich zum Gericht erhebt,
im Fleisch ihn schauen werde.
