Sei still dem Herrn

Language: German

Sei still dem Herrn, und wart' aus ihn,
Verbarg er auch sein Angesicht:
Und ob vor Leid das Herz dir bricht,
Den Glauben dein, verwirf ihn nicht!

O warte! Bald tritt er herein,
In seiner ganzen Freundlichkeit;
Wie flieht in seinem Gruße weit,
Und kehrt in Freude sich die Pein!

Du aber sinkst zur Erde hin,
Und rufst beschämt: "Mein Gott und Herr!"
Und glaubst und zweifelst nimmermehr;
So sei ihm still und wart' auf ihn!

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, it is supported financially 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.
