Ihr Häuser des Himmels, ihr scheinenden Lichter

Herr! so groß als Dein Erhöhen,
Pflantz ich auch Dein Wohlergehen
Ewigem Gedeyen ein.
Deine Krafft will ich erhalten,
Wie die Adler nicht veralten,
Wie die Felsen feste seyn. Da Capo.

Sachsen, komm zum Opffer-Heerd,
Laß den Weyrauch lieblich brennen,
Daß Sein Hertze mög erkennen,
Daß du Seines Glantzes werth. Da Capo.
