Wie's Gott gefällt, gefällt's mir auch

Ambrosius Blaurer

trans. by Catherine Winkworth, 1869

"What pleaseth God, that pleaseth me,

I will not fear nor tremble

Though cares may fret, though I may see

My bitterest foes assemble;

Though all things in confusion seem,

I know God's will is still supreme:

What must be, let it be--I rest

Firmly on this, His will is best.

"What pleaseth God I frankly take,

And only ask for patience;

He yet will help me, nor forsake

My soul amid temptations;

Though pain or death itself may threat,

His power I know can save me yet:

What must be, let it be--my trust

The end will show was right and just."
