3. Unter deinen Schirmen

From Jesu, meine Freude, BWV 227

Johann Sebastian Bach
e minor

German text

English translation

Unter deinen Schirmen
Under your protection
Bin ich für den Stürmen
I am safe from the storms
Aller Feinde frei.
of all enemies.
Laß den Satan wittern,
Let Satan rage,
Laß den Feind erbittern,
let the enemy fume,
Mir steht Jesus bei.
Jesus stands with me.
Ob es itzt gleich kracht und blitzt,
Whether now it thunders and flashes,
Ob gleich Sünd und Hölle schrecken,
whether sin and Hell terrify,
Jesus will mich decken.
Jesus will protect me.
