2 We are still as in a dungeon living,
No cross or sadness
To you are chanted
Who here would languish
With Thee, th’ Anointed,
S. Dack, 1635
dark hath been the mid - night, But day-spring is
2 O Christ, He is the fountain,
The deep, sweet well of love!
More deep I'll drink above.
His mercy doth expand,
In Immanuel's land. 3 With mercy and with judgment
My web of time He wove, And aye the dews of sorrow
Were lustered with His love:
I'll bless the hand that guided,
I'll bless the heart that planned When throned where glory dwelleth
In Immanuel's land. 4 The bride eyes not her garment,
But her dear bridegroom's face; I will not gaze at glory,
But on my King of grace; Not at the crown He giveth,
But on His piercèd hand; The Lamb is all the glory
Of Immanuel's land.

2 In this world of pain and care,
Lord, Thou wouldst no longer leave To Thy heavenly meadows fair fit;
Lovingly Thou dost receive it. Clothed in robes of spotless white, Now it dwells with Thee in light.
3 O Lord Jesus, grant that we
There may live where it is living, And the blissful pastures see
That its heavenly food are giving; Then the gain of death we'll prove, Though Thou take what most we love.

Praise God, this hour of
sor - row Shall bring a bright-er mor - row:
2 What better can befall me
No good He e'er neglected, Than that the Lord doth call me
And all His works His glory tell. From hence, where sin holds sway? 6 When ve shall see me nearing Who is on earth a stranger
The throne of God, appearing Must ever be in danger,
Adorned and crowned a bride, Till God hath closed life's fleeting day.
My palms of victory swinging, 3 God takes His own from anguish
'Midst Hallelujahs ringing, And pain, in which they languish
In beauteous grace the Lamb beWithin this vale of tears,
side: And gives them to inherit The crown that Christ did merit:
7 Ye both shall rue the sadness The joy of heaven's eternal years.
That made you weep, and gladness
E’er in your hearts shall reign. 4 I was on earth your treasure; When now I know but pleasure
Who follows where God guideth,
And takes what He provideth,
Shali know surcease from all his God's love in all abideth,
pain. And soon your tears shall cease to 8 Farewell, I now must leave you; flow.
The grief this day doth give you 5 Our days the Lord appointeth,
Soon others, too, shall bear. He woundeth and anointeth,
Be ye to God commended; He knoweth all things well.
In heaven all woe is ended, No evil He effected,
And we shall meet in glory there.
J. Heermann, 1634
