English.png English text

Over the heights the snow lies deep,
Sunk is the land in peaceful sleep;
Here by the house of God we pray,
Lead, Lord, our souls to-day.

Shielding, like the silent snow,
Fall his mercies here below.

Calmly then, like the snow-bound land;
Rest we in His protecting hand;
Bowing, we wait His mighty will:
Lead, Lord, and guide us still.
