  2. Gott verlässt die Seinen nicht
  3. Herr Jesu Christ, mein höchstes Gut
  4. Herr Jesu, meines Lebens Heil
  5. Ich bin bei allem Kummer still
  6. Ich weiss, an wen ich gläube
  7. Ich weiss dass mein Erlöser lebet

  9. Jesus nimmt die Sünder an!
  10. Ob Menschen klug und weise sein
  11. So ist die Woche nun geschlossen
  12. Wie Gott will, also will ich sagen
