1. Ach bleib mit deiner Gnade
Bei uns, herr jesu Christ,
Daß uns hinfort nicht schade
Des bösen Feindes List.

2. Ach bleib mit deinem Worte
Bei uns, Erlöser wert,
Daß uns beid hier und dorte
Sei Güt und Heil beschert.

3. Ach bleib mit deinem Glanze
Bei uns, du wertes Licht;
Dein Wahrheit uns umschanze,
Damit wir irren nicht.

4. Ach bleib mit deinem Segen
Bei un, du reicher Herr;
Dein Gnad und alls Vermögen
In uns reichlich vermehr.

5. Ach bleib mit deinem Schutze
Bei uns, du starker Held,
Daß uns der Feind nicht trutze,
Und fäll die böse Welt.

6. Ach bleib mit deiner Treue
Bei uns, mein Herr und Gott;
Beständigkeit verleihe,
Hilf uns aus aller Rot.
