Lyra Germanica Second Series The Christian Life by Catherine Winkworth

The Life of Faith Faith that worketh by Love.

Faith that worketh by Love.


Wer hält nicht Gottes Wort doch spricht

C. F. Gellert.1757.

Who keepeth not God's word, yet saith,

I know the Lord, is wrong;

In him is not that blessed faith

Through which the truth is strong;

But he who hears and keeps the word,

Is not of this world, but of God.

The faith His word hath caused to shine

Will kindle love in thee;

More wouldst thou know of things divine,

Deeper thy love must be;

True faith not only gives thee light,

But strength to love and do the right.

Jesus hath wash'd away our sin,

And we are children now;

Who feels such hope as this within,

To evil cannot bow;

Rather with Christ all scorn endure,

So we be like our Maker pure!

For he doth please the Father well

Who simply can obey;

In him the love of God doth dwell

Who steadfast keeps His way;

A daily active life of love,

Such fruits a living faith must prove.

He is in God, and God in him,

Who still abides in love;

'Tis love that makes the Cherubim

Obey and praise above;

For God is love, the loveless heart

Hath in His life and joy no part.
