Wie teuer sind des heilgen Mahles Gaben!

S

Text:

Wie teuer sind des heilgen Mahles Gaben!
Sie finden ihresgleichen nicht.
Was sonst die Welt
Vor kostbar hält,
Sind Tand und Eitelkeiten;
Ein Gotteskind wünscht diesen Schatz zu haben
Und spricht:

 

Ach, wie hungert mein Gemüte,
Menschenfreund, nach deiner Güte!
Ach, wie pfleg ich oft mit Tränen
Mich nach dieser Kost zu sehnen!
Ach, wie pfleget mich zu dürsten
Nach dem Trank des Lebensfürsten!
Wünsche stets, dass mein Gebeine
Sich durch Gott mit Gott vereine.
