Attributed to Albrecht von Brandenburg, c. 1554; German text
The will of God is always best|
And shall be done forever;
And they who trust in Him are blest,
He will forsake them never.
He helps indeed In time of need,
He chastens with forbearing;
They who depend On God, their Friend,
Shall not be left despairing.
2. God is my Comfort and my Trust,
3. Lord Jesus, this I ask of Thee,|
Deny me not this favor:
When Satan sorely troubles me,
Then do not let me waver.
Keep watch and ward, O gracious Lord,
Fulfil Thy faithful saying:
Who doth believe He shall receive
An answer to His praying.
4. When life's brief course on earth is run
