Ye who pine in weary sadness,
Weep no more, for the door
Now is found of gladness
Cling to him, for he will guide you,
Where no cross, pain or loss,
again can betide you

All 15 stanzas of the poem by Paul Gerhardt, 1653 (1607-1676)
Warum sollt' ich mich denn grämen?
Hab' ich doch Christum noch,
wer will mir den nehmen?
Wer will mir den Himmel rauben,
den mir schon Gottes Sohn
beigelegt im Glauben.
