Karl J.P. Spitta, 1843; German text

We are the Lord's; His all-sufficient merit,
Sealed on the cross, to us this grace accords.
We are the Lord's and all things shall inherit;
Whether we live or die, we are the Lord's.

2. We are the Lord's; then let us gladly tender
Our souls to Him in deeds, not empty words.
Let heart and tongue and life combine to render
No doubtful witness that we are the Lord's.

3. We are the Lord's; no darkness brooding o'er us
Can make us tremble while this star affords
A steady light along the path before us
Faith's full assurance that we are the Lord's.

4. We are the Lord's; no evil can befall us
In the dread hour of life's fast-loos'ning cords;
No pangs of death shall even then appal us.
Death we shall vanquish, for we are the Lord's.
