woman praying while leaning against brick wall

Nur in Jesu Blut und Wunden.

Now in Jesus’ wounds reposing,
I my tired eyes am closing.
For His love and pardoning grace
Are my only resting place.

Through the day His mercy holds me,
And by night His arm enfolds me.
Of Thy strong protection sure,
Jesus, I shall rest secure.

Tr. H. Brueckner, 1916.
