Representative Text

1 In Thee, Lord, have I put my trust;
Leave me not helpless in the dust;
Let me not be confounded.
Let in Thy Word
My faith, 0 Lord,
Be always firmly grounded.

2 Bow down Thy gracious ear to me
And hear my cries and prayers to Thee;
Haste Thee for my protection,
For woes and fear
Surround me here.
Help me in mine affliction.

3 My God and Shield, now let Thy pow'r
Be unto me a mighty tow'r
Whence bravely I defend me
Against the foes
That round me close.
0 Lord, assistance lend me.

4 Thou art my Strength, my Shield, my Rock,
My Fortress that withstands each shock,
My Help, my Life, my Treasure.
Whate'er the rod,
Thou art my God;
Naught can resist Thy pleasure.

5 The world for me has falsely set
Full many a secret snare and net
To tempt me and to harm me.
Lord, make them fail,
Do Thou prevail,
Let their disguise not charm me.

6 With Thee, Lord, have I cast my lot;
0 faithful God, forsake me not,
To Thee my soul commending.
Lord, be my Stay,
Lead Thou the way
Now and when life is ending.

7 All honor, praise, and majesty
To Father, Son, and Spirit be,
Our God forever glorious,
In whose rich grace
We'll run our race
Till we depart victorious.

Catherine Winkworth (b. Holborn, London, England, 1827; d. Monnetier, Savoy, France, 1878) is well known for her English translations of German hymns; her translations were polished and yet remained close to the original. Educated initially by her mother, she lived with relatives in Dresden, Germany, in 1845, where she acquired her knowledge of German and interest in German hymnody. After residing near Manchester until 1862, she moved to Clifton, near Bristol. A pioneer in promoting women's rights, Winkworth put much of her energy into the encouragement of higher education for women. 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.
