Geistlicher \ Haus Segen.
Jesu wohn in meinem Haus, weiche nimmermehr daraus, \ Bleib mit deiner Gnad darin, weil ich sonst verlassen bin, \ O du grosser Seegens mann! Komm mit deinem Segen an. \ Gib daß friede, Glück und Heil meinem Hause werd \ zu Theil Gleich wie Job und Abraham reichen Segen überkam: Ey so schütt auch über mich Deinen \ Seegen mildiglich Jesu wohn in meinem Hertzen, wann ich leide Angst und Schmerzen, wann mich drü= \ cket Angst und Noth, So hilf mir, O treuer Gott, \ wann ich nicht mehr Reichthum bleibt mir doch \ die Himmels Gabe: Ob ich hier schon Trübsal leide, bleibt mir doch des Himmels freude.
Susanna Lang \ eine geborne Rudy


Spiritual House Blessing.
Jesus, dwell in my house, never leave it, live in it with your grace because otherwise I will be abandoned. Oh you great man of blessings! Come with your blessing. Give peace, happiness, and grace that will become part of my house. Like Job and Abraham, shower me with your abundant blessings. Jesus, live in my heart. When I suffer from fear and pain, when fear and need presses me down, help me, oh faithful God. When I no longer have wealth I will still be left with the gifts of heaven. Even though I may suffer sadness here I am left with the joys of heaven.
Susanna Lang, a born Rudy
