In peace and joy I now depart As God is willingAuthor: Martin Luther
Tune: MIT FRIED UND FREUD
Published in 2 hymnals
1 In peace and joy I now depart
As my Lord wills it;
Serene and quiet is my heart;
Gladness fills it.
This the Lord has promised me,
That death is but a slumber.
2 Christ Jesus brought this gift to me,
My faithful Savior,
Whom you allowed my eyes to see
By your favor.
Now I know he is my life,
My friend when I am dying.
3 You sent the people of the earth
Their great salvation;
Your invitation summons forth
By your holy, precious Word,
In ev'ry place resounding.
4 Christ is the hope and saving light
Of those in blindness;
He guides and comforts those in night
By his kindness.
He is Israel's righteousness,
Their joy, reward, and glory.
