Here I can firmly rest I dare to boast of this




Here I can firmly rest!
I dare to boast of this,
That God, the highest and the best,
My Friend and Father is.


In me he ever dwells,
O’er all my mind he reigns;
All care and sadness he dispels,
And soothes away my pains.


At cost of all I have,—
At cost of life and limb,
I cling to God, who yet shall save;
I will not turn from him.


The world may fail and flee;
Thou, God, my Father art;
Not fire, nor sword, nor plague, from thee
My trusting soul shall part.


No joys that angels know;
No throne nor wide-spread fame,
No love nor loss, nor fear nor woe,
No grief of heart or shame—


Man can not aught conceive,
Of pleasure or of harm,
That e’er shall tempt my soul to leave
Her refuge in thine arm.
