Wie hast du dich, mein Gott

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wie hast du dich, mein Gott,
In meiner Not,
In meiner Furcht und Zagen
Denn ganz von mir gewandt?
Ach! kennst du nicht dein Kind?
Ach! hörst du nicht das Klagen
Von denen, die dir sind
Mit Bund und Treu verwandt?
Da warest meine Lust
Und bist mir grausam worden;
Ich suche dich an allen Orten,
Ich ruf und schrei dir nach,
Allein mein Weh und Ach!
Scheint jetzt, als sei es dir ganz unbewußt.

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by about 0.03% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
