2 We are still as in a dungeon living,
No cross or sadness
To you are chanted
Who here would languish
With Thee, th’ Anointed,
S. Dack, 1635
2 What better can befall me
No good He e'er neglected, Than that the Lord doth call me
And all His works His glory tell. From hence, where sin holds sway?
6 When ye shall see me nearing Who is on earth a stranger
The throne of God, appearing Must ever be in danger,
Adorned and crowned a bride, Till God hath closed life's fleeting day.
My palms of victory swinging, 3 God takes His own from anguish
'Midst Hallelujahs ringing, And pain, in which they languish
In beauteous grace the Lamb beWithin this vale of tears,
side: And gives them to inherit The crown that Christ did inerit:
7 Ye both shall rue the sadness The joy of heaven's eternal years.
That made you weep, and gladness 4 I was on earth your treasure;
E’er in your hearts shall reign.
Who follows where God guideth, When now I know but pleasure Ye weep in bitter woe;
And takes what He provideth,
Shall know surcease from all his Believe, whate'er betideth,
pain. God's love in all abideth, And soon your tears shall cease to 8 Farewell, I now must leave you; flow.
The grief this day doth give you 5 Our days the Lord appointeth,
Soon others, too, shall bear. He woundeth and anointeth,
Be ye to God commended; He knoweth all things well.
In heaven all woe is ended, No evil He effected,
And we shall meet in glory there.
J. Heermann, 1634
