Wen Jesus liebt

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wen Jesus liebt, wen Jesus liebt,
der kann allein recht fröhlich seyn
und nie betrübt.

Im Himmel noch, im Himmel noch
Auf Gottes Thron liebt Gottes Sohn
Die Seinen doch.

Und giebt und schenkt, und giebt und schenkt
Der Gaben viel ohn' Maaß und Ziel,
und sorgt und denkt,

Und liebt auch mich, und liebt auch mich,
Giebt auf mich Acht; drum Tag und Nacht
So froh bin ich.

Thou boundless, shining, glorious sea

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Thou boundless, shining, glorious sea,
With ecstacy I gaze on thee,
I gaze on thee.

Joy, joy to him whose early beam
Kisses thy lips, bright ocean stream,
Bright ocean stream

Drunk with joy, thou deep toned sea,
My spirit swells to Heav'n with thee,
To Heav'n with thee.

Or sinking with thee, seeks the gloom
Of nature's deep mysterious tomb,
Mysterious tomb.
