Original Text
My soul, there is a country far beyond the stars, where stands a winged sentry
All skillful in the wars: There above noise and danger,
Sweet peace sits crowned with smiles, And one born in a manger
Commands the beauteous files. He is thy gracious friend
And O my soul awake! Did in pure love descend
To die here for Thy sake. If thou canst get but thither,
There grows the flower of peace
The Rose that cannot wither Thy fortress, and thy ease.
Leave then thy foolish ranges, For none can thee secure
But one who never changes, Thy God, thy life, thy cure
