Original text and translations
- Over the heights the snow lies deep,
- Sunk is the land in peaceful sleep;
- Here by the house of God we pray,
- Lead, Lord, our souls to-day.
- Shielding, like the silent snow,
- Fall his mercies here below.
- Calmly then, like the snow-bound land;
- Rest we in His protecting hand;
- Bowing, we wait His mighty will:
- Lead, Lord, and guide us still.
