I know in whom I put my trust - The Christian's Trust
(Ernst Moritz Arndt/ Catherine Winkworth/
Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

The Christian's Trust.

1. I know in whom I put my trust,
  I know what standeth fast,
when all things here dissolve like dust
  or smoke before the blast:
I know what still endures, howe'er
  all else may quake and fall,
when lies the prudent men ensnare,
  and dreams the wise enthral.

2. It is the Dayspring from on high,
  the adamantine Rock,
whence never storm can make me fly,
  that fears no earthquake's shock;
my Jesus Christ, my sure Defence,
  my Saviour, and my Light,
that shines within, and scatters thence
  dark phantoms of the night;

3. who once was borne, betrayed and slain,
  at evening to the grave;
whom God awoke, who rose again,
  a Conqueror strong to save:
who pardons all my sin, who sends
  his Spirit pure and mild;
whose grace my every step befriends,
  who ne'er forgets his child!

4. Therefore I know in whom I trust,
  I know what standeth fast,
when all things formed of earthly dust
  are whirling in the blast;
the terrors of the final foe
  can rob me not of this;
and this shall crown me once, I know,
  with never-fading bliss.

Catherine Winkworth, Lyra Germanica: The Christian Life, 1868, 176-177.
Translated from the German Ich weiß, an wen ich glaube
of Ernst Moritz Arndt.
