Representative Text

1 How blest are they who through the pow'r
Of heaven-kindled faith
Confide in Thee each day and hour,
O Christ of Nazareth!
O Christ of Nazareth!

2 Grant us a firmer, stronger faith
In Thee, O Crucified;
In joy and pain, in life and death,
With Thy redeemed abide.
With Thy redeemed abide.

3 Thy pardon, full, complete, bestow
Upon Thy ransomed own,
That all the Father's love may know,
And trust Thy grace alone.
And trust Thy grace alone.

4 What joy, when faith is changed to sight,
And heaven's gates we see,
To laud Thy Name in mansions bright,
Through all eternity!
Through all eternity!

Amen.

Anna Hoppe was born on May 7, 1889 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She left school after the eighth grade and worked as a stenographer. She began writing patriotic verses when she was very young and by the age of 25 she was writing spiritual poetry. After some of her poems appeared in the Northwestern Lutheran, a periodical of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod, they came to the attention of Dr. Adolf Hult of Augustana Seminary, Rock Island, Illinois. He influenced her to write her Songs for the Church Year (1928). Several hymnals include her work, which was usually set to traditional chorale melodies, although she also made a number of translations. She died on August 2, 1941 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
