Christ My Song - 1498
There is a song so thrilling - The song of songs
(Carl Johann Philipp Spitta/Richard Massie/
Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
The song of songs.
1. There is a song so thrilling,
so far all songs excelling,
that they who sing it, sing it oft again;
no mortal did invent it,
but God by angels sent it,
so deep and earnest, yet so sweet and plain.
2. The love, which it revealeth,
all earthly sorrows healeth;
they flee like mist before the break of day.
When, O my soul, thou learnest
that song of songs in earnest,
thy cares and troubles all shall pass away.
