Komm zum Kreuz mit Deinen Lasten

Full Text

1 Komm zum Kreuz mit Deinen Lasten,
geh auf zu!
Bei dem Kreuze kannst Du rasten,
da ist Ruh!

2 Unter des Gerichtes Ruten
sieh am Kreuzesstamm
für dich dulden und verbluten
Gottes Lamm!

3 An dem Kreuze trug der Reine
deiner Sünde Lohn.
Sieh, wie liebt dich dieser Eine,
Gottes Sohn!

4 Da stillt Er dein heiß Verlangen,
heilet deinen Schmerz;
Frieden wirst du da empfangen,
müdes Herz!

5 Trost, Vergebung, ewges Leben
fließt vom Kreuz dir zu;
bei dem Kreuz wird Er dir geben
wahre Ruh!
