Herr, schicke was du willt

Language: German

Herr, schicke was du [willt]1,
Ein Liebes oder Leides;
Ich bin vergnügt, daß beides
Aus Deinen Händen quillt.

Wollest mit Freuden 
Und wollest mit Leiden
Mich nicht überschütten!
Doch in der Mitten,
Liegt holdes Bescheiden.

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.

Prayer

Language: English

Send what You will, my Lord,
May it be love or sorrows!
I am content that both
From Thy dear hands do pour.

May You with love 
and may You with sorrows
Not overwhelm me!
For it's the midway
Where modesty grows.
