Hymns From The Land Of Luther by Jane Borthwick




|If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature.| -- I Cor.5:17.

|Ich glaube, Hallelujah!|


transl., Jane Borthwick, 1858

Hallelujah! I believe!

Now the giddy world stands fast,

Now my soul has found an anchor

Till the night of storm is past.

All the gloomy mists are rising,

And a clue is in my hand,

Through earth's labyrinth to guide me

To a bright and heavenly land.

Hallelujah! I believe!

Sorrow's bitterness is o'er,

And affliction's heavy burden

Weighs my spirit down no more.

On the cross the mystic writing

Now revealed before me lies,

And I read the words of comfort,

|As a father, I chastise.|

Hallelujah!, I believe!

Now no longer on my soul

All the debt of sin is lying --

One great Friend has paid the whole!

Ice-bound fields of legal labor

I have left, with all their toil;

While the fruits of love are growing

From a new and genial soil.

Hallelujah! I believe!

Now life's mystery is gone,

Gladly through its fleeting shadows,

To the end I journey on.

Through the tempest or the sunshine,

Over flowers or ruins led,

Still the path is homeward hasting,

Where all sorrow shall have fled.

Hallelujah! I believe!

Now, O Love! I know thy power,

Thine no false or fragile fetters,

Not the rose-wreaths of an hour!

Christian bonds of holy union,

Death itself does not destroy;

Yes, to live, and love forever,

Is our heritage of joy!
