Give to the Winds Thy Fears

Full Text

1 Give to the winds thy fears;
hope, and be undismayed.
God hears thy sighs and counts thy tears;
God shall lift up thy head.

2 Through waves and clouds and storms
God gently clears the way.
Wait patiently; so shall this night
soon end in joyous day.

3 Leave to God’s sovereign sway
to choose and to command.
So shalt thou, wondering, own God’s way,
how wise, how strong God’s hand!

4 Let us in life, in death,
thy steadfast truth declare,
and publish with our final breath
thy love and guardian care.

May 19, 1622, d. March 5, 1668) became his wife in 1655. During this period he seems to have frequently preached in Berlin. He was appoint… Go to person page >
