Vormals richtete Gott

Language: German (Deutsch)

Vormals richtete Gott.


                                 wer richtet denn itzt? 

Richtet das einige 
  Volk? Die heilge Gemeinde? 
  Nein! o nein! wer richtet denn itzt? 
                   ein Natterngeschlecht!  feig und falsch 
                                 	 das edlere Wort nicht mehr 
                 Über die Lippe
O im Nahmen 
                                          ruf ich 
          Alter Dämon! dich herab 

Oder sende 
   Einen Helden 

       die Weisheit.
