Rede, Herr, ich warte

Full Text

1 Rede, Herr, ich warte
auf ein Wort von Dir;
lauschend blick ich aufwärts:
Herr, begegne mir!

2 Sprich, geliebter Meister,
jetzt, da alles still,
und sich meine Seele
zu Dir kehren will!

3 Was Du irgend redest,
o mein Heiland, Gott,
ist für meine Seele
das wahrhaftge Brot.

4 Rede, Dein Knecht höret,
rede mehr und mehr!
Mich verlangt nach Deinem
Lebenswort so sehr.

5 Um Erkenntnis Deines
Willens flehe ich;
und Dein Wohlgefallen
wirke, Herr, durch mich!

6 Daß mein Leben werde
wie ein frischer Quell,
dessen Strom nicht trüget,
dessen Wasser hell,

7 der die Müden tränket,
Durstige beglückt,
und an dem Dein Auge,
Heiland, sich erquickt.
