In Thee, Lord, Have I Put My Trust

Representative Text

1 I trust, O LORD, your holy name;
O let me not be put to shame
nor let me be confounded.
My faith, O LORD,
be in your Word
forever firmly grounded.

2 Bow down your gracious ear to me
and hear my cry, my prayer, my plea;
make haste for my protection,
for woes and fear
surround me here.
Help me in my affliction.

3 You are my strength, my shield, my rock,
my fortress strong against each shock,
my help, my life, my tower,
my battle sword,
almighty LORD—
who can resist your power?

4 With you, O LORD, I cast my lot;
O faithful God, forsake me not,
to you my soul commending.
Lord, be my stay,
and lead the way
now and when life is ending.

5 All honor, praise, and majesty
to Father, Son, and Spirit be,
our God forever glorious,
in whose rich grace
we run our race
till we depart victorious.

Catherine Winkworth (b. Holborn, London, England, 1827; d.

She translated a large number of German hymn texts from hymnals owned by a friend, Baron Bunsen. Though often altered, these translations continue to be used i… Go to person page >

Author: Adam Reissner

Reissner, Adam, was born in 1496 at Mündelsheim (now Mündelheim) in Swabian Bavaria. He first studied at Wittenberg, and then, about 1521, he learned Hebrew and Greek under Johann Keuchlin. He then became private secretary to Georg von Freundsberg (who died Aug. 20, 1528), and accompanied him during the campaign in Italy, 1530-27. After the capture of Rome in 1527 he went back to Germany, and spent some time at Strassburg, where he became a friend and adherent of Caspar Schwenkfeldt. He seems to have been living at Frankfurt-am-Main in 1563, but thereafter returned to Mündelheim, where he was still living in 1572. He appears to have died there about 1575.
