To Myself by Paul Fleming. Winkworth.
Translated from the German by Catherine
LET nothing make thee sad or fretful,
Or too regretful;
What God hath ordered must be right;
Then find in it thine own delight,
Why shouldst thou fill to-day with sorrow
One watches all with care most true;
Doubt not that he will give thee too
Only be steadfast; never waver,
Nor seek earth’s favor,
Thou knowest what God wills must be
For all his creatures, so for thee,
