Ach, hätt' ich Engelzungen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ach, hätt' ich Engelzungen,
Ich hätt' euch wohl gesungen
Das süße, liebe Lied,
Das mir so still und selig
Im jungen Herzen glüht.

Ich weiß ja keine Weisen,
Den Herren so zu preisen,
Den Vater, treu und mild,
Wie meine ganze Seele
Ihm singt und jauchzt und spielt.

Ich muß mein Haupt Ihm neigen,
Kann weinen nur und schweigen
In Seligkeit und Schmerz;
Ach Kind, Er weiß dein Lieben,
Er sieht dir ja in's Herz.
