Herr, der du rufst dem Morgenroth

Language: German (Deutsch)

   Herr, der du rufst dem Morgenroth!
Und riegelst zu das Thor der Nacht,
Daß das Gewölk auf dein Gebot
Brennt, wie von Andachtsgluth entfacht:
   O sende deiner Gnade Strahl
Auch mir in’s Herz und mach’s bereit,
Nach allem Jammer, aller Qual
Zu preisen deine Gütigkeit!
   Herr, der den Aar du fliegen heißt
Aus seinem Horst zur Sonne gleich:
Entreiß’ auch mich durch deinen Geist
Der finstern Nacht und ihrem Reich!
   Aus fernster Höh laß’ ohne Graun
Mich blicken auf der Erde Noth,
Und jauchzen dir im Niederschaun,
Als wie dir jauchzt das Morgenroth!
