Quand dans les heures de crainte et de trouble
Notre cœur perd presque courage,
Quand vaincu par la maladie
La peur ronge notre être intime,
Nous pensons à ceux qui nous aiment fidèlement,
Comment le chagrin et la douleur les accablent,
Des nuages limitent notre regard,
Aucun rayon d'espoir ne les traversent.

Oh ! alors Dieu se penche vers nous,
Son amour vient près de nous,
Nous soupirons pour le ciel,
Son ange se tient devant nous,
Il apporte la coupe pleine de la fraîcheur de la vie,
Il nous murmure des mots de courage et de réconfort,
Et nous ne prions pas en vain
Pour le repos de nos bien-aimés.


Translation of title "Wenn in bangen, trüben Stunden" = "Quand dans les heures de crainte et de trouble"

Notre petit bateau navigue
Sur la vaste mer de la vie,
Il dérive vers un rivage lointain ;
Ses voiles se gonflent,
Et il dirige sa course
Plein de nostalgie de sa patrie.

Ah, à la maison, à la maison, combien
Nous aimerions être avec notre Seigneur,
Là où l'amour ne se refroidit pas,
Là où la paix est éternelle,
Et la joie est transfigurée,
Et la jeunesse ne vieillit jamais.

Le désir brûle plus fort,
La course du petit bateau s'accélère,
Volant de vague en vague.
Sur les flots une étoile se lève ;
Le royaume du Seigneur est là-bas !
Ah, de l'autre côté, juste là !
