Kinderen van de Vrede
Wij zijn de kinderen van de Vrede
die hun zwaarden tot ploegscharen
en speren tot sikkels hebben gemaakt
en kennen geen oorlog meer.

Menno Simons – (1496-1561)

Wehrlos und verlassen
Wehrlos und verlassen sehnt sich
oft mein Herz nach stiller Ruh
doch Du dekkest mit dem Fittich
Deiner Liebe sanft mich zu
Unter Deinem sanften Fittich
Find’ich Frieden, Trost und Ruh
denn Du schirmest mich so freundlich
schützest mich und deckst mich zu
Selig sind die’ welche trauen dem Gott
Carl Röhl – (1810-1883)


The Children of Peace
We are the children of peace
who have beaten their swords into plowshares
and their spears into pruning hooks,
and know war no more

Lonely and Defenceless
When I’m lonely and defenceless
my heart longs for rest and peace
Then you spread Your wings of caring
with Your love You cover me
Under Your gentle wing
I find peace, solace and rest
For You shield me so kindly
Protect me and console me.
Blessed are they who trust in God
