Dir, Jesu, Gottes Sohn, sei Preis,
daß ich aus deinem Worte weiß,
was ewig selig macht!
Gib das ich nun auch fest und true
in diesem meinem Glauben sei.

   
 

Ich bringe Lob und Ehre dir,
daß du ein ewig Heil auch mir
durch deinen Tod erwarbst.
Herr, dieses Heil gewähre mir,
und ewig, ewig dank ich dir.
