Praise and Thanksgiving

To the Saviour.


In dir ist Freude

I. Lindemann. 1580-1630.

In Thee is gladness

Amid all sadness,

Jesus, Sunshine of my heart!

By Thee are given

The gifts of heaven,

Thou the true Redeemer art!

Our souls Thou wakest,

Our bonds Thou breakest,

Who trusts Thee surely

Hath built securely,

He stands for ever:


Our hearts are pining

To see Thy shining,

Dying or living

To Thee are cleaving,

Nought can us sever;


If He is ours,

We fear no powers

Of earth or Satan, sin or death!

He sees and blesses

In worst distresses,

He can change them with a breath!


Wherefore the story

Tell of His glory

With heart and voices;

All heaven rejoices

In Him for ever;


We triumph o'er sadness,

We sing in our gladness,

We love Thee, we praise Thee,

And yonder shall raise Thee,

Glad hymns for ever;
