8. Der du von dem Himmel bist [sung text not yet checked]

Der1 du [von dem Himmel]2 bist,
[Alles Leid]3 und Schmerzen [stillest]4,
Den, der doppelt elend ist,
Doppelt mit [Erquickung füllest]5,
Ach ich bin des Treibens müde!
[Was soll all der Schmerz und Lust?]6
Süßer Friede,
Komm, ach komm in [meine]7 Brust!
