Nimm mir Alles, Gott

Language: German

Nimm mir Alles, Gott, mein Gott! 
Nur nicht deinen heilgen Geist: 
Ach, da wär' ich gar verarmt,
Ach, da wär' ich gar verwaist! 

Nimm mir Alles, was du willst, 
Glauben nur und Hoffen nicht;
Nimm mir Alles, nur verbirg 
Ganz mir nicht dein Angesicht! 

Hab' ich dich noch, Gott, mein Gott! 
Ist ja Alles wieder mein;
Denn was ich an dich verlor, 
Kann ja nicht verloren sein.

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, it is supported financially by less than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
