by Ambrosius Lobwasser (1579)

1. Ihr knecht des Herren allzugleich
Den Herren lobt im himmelreich
Die ihr in Gottes hauß bey nacht
Als seine diener hüt und wacht.

2. Zum heiligthumb die händ auffhebt
Lob ehr und preiß dem Herren gebt
Dancksaget ihm von hertzen grund
Sein lob stets führt in ewerm mund.

3. Gott der geschaffen hat die welt
Und alles durch sein krafft erhält
Der segne dich vom berg Sion
Mit seinen gaben reich und schon.
