Martin Luther, 1524; German text
In peace and joy I now depart|
At God's disposing;
For full of comfort is my heart,
So the Lord hath promised me,
And death is but a slumber.
2. 'Tis Christ that wrought this work for me,
3. Him Thou hast unto all set forth|
Their great Salvation
And to His kingdom called the earth,
By Thy dear and wholesome Word,
In every place resounding.
4. He is the Hope and saving Light
