Wilt Thou, O Man, Live Happily
Martin Luther; German text
|Wilt thou, O man, live happily,|
And dwell with God eternally,
The ten commandments keep, for thus
Our God himself biddeth us.
2. I am the Lord and God! take heed
|3. Honor my name in word and deed,|
And call on me in time of need:
Hallow the Sabbath, that I may
Work in thy heart on that day.
4. Obedient always, next to me,
|5. Steal not, nor do thy neigbor wrong|
By bearing witness with false tongue;
Thy neighbor's wife desire thou not,
Nor grudge him aught he hath got. Kyrieleison!
