English.png English text

My faith is mighty as the tide
That silence sweeps from shore to shore.
I ask no other help beside;
I need no more.
My faith is boundless wealth to me;
No other treasure would I win;
Eternal fortune that shall be
Release from sin.
My faith is strong and bears me up
Thro' ev'ry sea of doubt and pain,
And sweetens ev'ry bitter cup,
My lips must drain.
My faith is life while I am here,
My trust when comes the final call,
My courage that defieth fear,
My hope, my all, my hope, my all.
