"Schaust du mich aus deinen Augen

“‘Come, lean on me, ye that are weary!
Rise, ye faint-hearted and doubting!
Haste, ye that lag by the way!

Valour and Hope are my henchmen;
I am the Angel of Rest.”

Heusden-Zolder (B)

Thy wheel and thee we neither love nor hate.”

Turn thy wild wheel thro’ sunshine, storm, and cloud;
Thy wheel and thee we neither love nor hate.”
