In dir ist Freude,
in allem Leide,
o du süßer Jesu Christ!

durch dich wir haben
himmlische Gaben,
du der wahre Heiland bist.

Hilfest von Schanden,
rettest von Banden;
wer dir vertrauet,
hat wohl gebauet,
wird ewig bleiben.
Halleluja.

Zu deiner Güte
steht unser G'müte.
An dir wir kleben
in Tod und Leben,
nichts kann uns scheiden.
Halleluja.
