Jesus

Hier, in meines Vaters Stätte
Here, in [God] my father’s [dwelling] place,
Findt mich ein betrübter Geist.
Will a grieved spirit find me.
Da kannst du mich sicher finden
You can assuredly find me there
Und dein Herz mit mir verbinden,
And bind your heart with me,
Weil dies meine Wohnung heisst.
Because this [place] is called my dwelling.
