Now Rest Beneath Night's Shadows

Author: Paul Gerhardt Meter: Appears in 31 hymnals Lyrics: 1 Now rest beneath night's shadows The woodlands, fields and meadows, The world in slumber lies; But thou, my soul, awake thee, To song and prayer betake thee, Let praise to thy Creator rise. 2 The radiant sun hath vanished, Its golden rays are banished By night, the foe of day; But Christ, the Sun of gladness, Dispelling all my sadness, Within my heart holds constant sway. 3 The rule of day is over, And shining jewels cover The sky above so blue. Thus I shall shine in heaven, Where crowns of gold are given To all who faithful prove and true. 4 My body lies divested Of garments that have rested Upon this form of clay. But I in rapture ponder How Christ shall clothe me yonder With glory that endures for aye. 5 Lord Jesus, who dost love me, Thy pinions spread above me, And shield me well from harm. Let angel guards attend me And from the foe defend me, That I may rest without alarm. 6 My loved ones, rest securely, For God will keep you surely From pain and perils sore. Sweet slumbers may He send you, And may His hosts defend you With golden weapons evermore. Topics: Evening Used With Tune: INNSPRUCK Text Sources: Tr. Composite

Nun Ruhen Alle Wälder

Author: Paul Gerhardt Meter: Appears in 98 hymnals Lyrics: 1 Nun ruhen alle Wälder, Vieh, Menschen, Städt’ und Felder, Es schläft die ganze Welt; Ihr aber, meine Sinnen, Auf, auf, ihr sollt beginnen, Was eurem Schöpfer wohlgefällt! 2 Wo bist, du, Sonne, blieben? Die Nacht hat dich vertrieben, Die Nacht, des Tages Feind. Fahr hin! Ein’ andre Sonne, Mein Jesus, meine Wonne, Gar hell in meinem Herzen scheint. 3 Der Tag ist nun vergangen, Die güldnen Sternlein prangen Am blauen Himmelssaal; So, so werd’ ich auch stehen, Wenn mich wird heissen gehen Mein Gott aus diesem Jammertal. 4 Der Leib eilt nun zur Ruhe, Legt ab das Kleid und Schuhe, Das Bild der Sterblichkeit; Die zieh’ ich aus, dagegen Wird Christus mir anlegen Den Rock der Ehr’ und Herrlichkeit. 5 Breit aus die Flügel beide, O Jesu, meine Freude, Und nimm dein Küchlein ein! Will Satan mich verschlingen, So lass die Englein singen: Dies Kind soll unverletzet sein! 6 Auch euch, ihr mein Lieben, Soll heute nicht betrüben Kein Unfall nich Gefahr. Gott lass’ euch ruhig schlafen, Stell’ euch die güldnen Waffen Ums Bett und seiner Helden Schar. Used With Tune: O WELT, ICH MUSS DICH LASSEN

Now rest beneath night's shadow

Author: P. Gerhardt Meter: Appears in 16 hymnals Lyrics: 1 Now rest beneath night's shadow The woodland, field, and meadow, The world in slumber lies; But thou, my heart, awake thee, To prayer and song betake thee, Let praise to thy Creator rise. 2 To rest my body hasteth, Aside its garments casteth-- Types of mortality; These I put off, and ponder How Christ will give me yonder A robe of glorious majesty. 3 Ye weary limbs, now rest you, For toil hath sore oppressed you, And quiet sleep ye crave; A sleep shall once o'ertake you From which no man can wake you, In your last, narrow bed--the grave. 4 Lord Jesus, who dost love me, O spread Thy wings above me, And shield me from alarm! Though Satan would devour me, Let angel-guards sing o'er me: This child of God shall meet no harm. 5 My loved ones, rest securely, For God this night will surely From perils guard your heads; Sweet slumbers may He send you, And bid His hosts attend you, And through the night watch o’er your beds.

Upon the Cross Extended

Author: Paul Gerhardt, 1607-76; John Kelly, 1833-90 Meter: Appears in 11 hymnals Lyrics: 1 Upon the cross extended, See, world, your Lord suspended. Your Savior yields His breath. The Prince of Life from heaven Himself hath freely given To shame and blows and bitter death. 2 Come, see these things and ponder, Your soul will fill with wonder As blood streams from each pore. Through grief beyond all knowing From His great heart came flowing Sighs welling from its deepest core. 4 I caused your grief and sighing By evils multiplying As countless as the sands. I caused the woes unnumbered With which your soul is cumbered, Your sorrows raised by wicked hands. 6 Your cords of love, my Savior, Bind me to You forever, I am no longer mine. To you I gladly tender All that my life can render And all I have to you resign. Topics: Passion Week Used With Tune: O WELT, ICH MUSS DICH LASSEN
