Vor dem Muttergottesbild

Language: German

Wenn meine Blicke hangen,
Du Lichtgestalt, an dir,
Dann ruht der Seele Bangen
Und Friede wohnt in mir;

Mein Herz erfüllet Wehmut,
Die feucht dem Aug' entquillt,
Es fasst mich tiefe Demut
Vor dir, du heilig Bild.

Bei deinem Anblick bet' ich
Mit inbrunstvollem Drang,
Der Andacht Glut durchweht mich
So selig und so bang.

Das heiligste Vertrauen
Ein armes Kind dir weiht;
O wolle niederschauen
Auf mich und auf mein Leid.
