Original text and translations

English.png English text

My soul, there is a country
Far beyond the stars,
Where stands a winged sentry
All skilful in the wars:
 
There, above noise and danger
Sweet Peace sits crowned with smiles
And One, born in a manger
Commands the beauteous files.

He is thy gracious friend
And, O my soul, awake!
Did in pure love descend
To die here for thy sake.

If thou canst get but thither,
There grows the flow'r of Peace,
The Rose that cannot wither,
Thy fortress and thy ease.

Leave then thy foolish ranges,
For none can thee secure
But One who never changes,
Thy God, thy life, thy cure.

German.png German translation

Meine Seele, es gibt ein Land
weit hinter den Sternen,
wo ein Engel als Wachposten steht,
geschickt in allen Kriegskünsten.

Dort, jenseits von Lärm und Gefahrsitzt
lächelnd süßer Frieden,und Einer,
der in einer Krippe geboren wurde,
befehligt die strahlenden Heerscharen.

Er ist dein gütiger Freund,
und – erwache, meine Seele! –
stieg aus reiner Liebe herab,
um hier für dich zu sterben.

Kannst du nur dorthin gelangen,
wächst dort die Blume des Friedens,
die Rose, die nicht verwelken kann,
dein Bollwerk und deine Ruhe.

Lass nun das törichte Umherschweifen,
denn niemand kann dich retten
außer dem Einen, der sich niemals wandelt,
dein Gott, dein Leben, dein Heil.
