To Myself by Paul Fleming.

Translated from the German by Catherine

Winkworth.

LET nothing make thee sad or fretful,
Or too regretful;
Be still;
What God hath ordered must be right;
Then find in it thine own delight,
My will.

Why shouldst thou fill to-day with sorrow
About to-morrow,
My heart?
One watches all with care most true;
Doubt not that he will give thee too
Thy part.

Only be steadfast; never waver,
Nor seek earth’s favor,
But rest:
Thou knowest what God wills must be
For all his creatures, so for thee,
The best.

    Ah, it's so refreshing to hear such a different rhythm than I am used to. And the poet of this poem died in 1640!!! The rhythm here reminds me of a sort of rocking chair: back, forth, still, back, forth, still. It's beautiful. 🎶❤🎶
