2037. Gute Baume Bringen

1 Star whose light shines o'er me,
Rock on which I stand,
Guide who goes before me
To my fatherland,
Daily bread reviving,
Spring that cheers my heart,
Goal to which I'm striving--
All, O Lord, Thou art!

2 But for Thine upholding
Where would strength be found?
By Thine arms enfolding
Thou dost gird me round,
Faith - a shining beacon --
Hope, lest I lose heart --
Love that cannot weaken --
All, O Lord, Thou art!

3 o from morn till even
By Thy help I come,
Till the bells of heaven
Ring my welcome home.
Then new songs I'll sing Thee
From a joyful heart.
Naught have I to bring Thee --
All, O Lord, Thou art!
