Gebet

Language: German (Deutsch)

Heil'ge Quelle, die entstiegen 
aus der Erde tiefem Schacht,
möge nimmer uns versiegen 
deine segensreiche Macht.
Sieh' es wallt zu deinen Pforten 
Schmerz und Plage ungestillt;
weit vom Süden und vom Norden, 
wie zum fernen Gnadenbild.

Heil'ge Quelle, gieb uns wieder 
Tage, die vom Glück erhellt,
uns zu Heilung send' hernieder
deinen Engel, Herr der Welt.
Lass ihn tauchen seine Schwingen
in des Sprudels klare Fluth,
sie mit heil'ger Kraft durchdringen,
uns mit neuer Lebensgluth.

Heil'ge Quelle, heil'ge Quelle,
gieb uns neuen Lebensmuth.
