Komm, süsser Tod

(anonym översättning efter anonym originaltext på tyska, melodi av J. S. Bach)

Kom, sköna död. Kom, sälla frid.
Kom, led mig bort dit det blir stilla,
Ty här i världen är det illa.
Ack, kom, jag väntar dig.
Kom snart och hämta mig.
Nu vill jag sova. Det är tid.
Kom, sälla frid.

Kom, sköna död. Kom, sälla frid.
Jag vill till Jesus själv fara,
Och bland hans änglar vara.
Så blir mitt liv fullbordat.
Till er jag hälsar God natt,
Blundar och säger: Det är tid.
Kom, sälla frid.

You are a Hunter Soul

“You are driven and ambitious – totally self motivated to succeed. Actively working to achieve what you want, you are skillful in many areas. You are a natural predator with strong instincts … and more than a little demanding. You are creative, energetic, and an extremely powerful force.

An outdoors person, you like animals and relate to them better than people. You tend to have an explosive personality, but also a good sense of humor. People sometimes see you as arrogant or a know it all. You tend to be a bit of a loner, though you hate to be alone.

Ha! This is the result I get most often, if I try the silly personality test on Blogthings (a site with more or less inane games for American teenagers – and I had to change a couple of misspelled words in the text I quoted…). Natural predator! Yes!! Very much like me. Other times when I have taken this test, I get results pointing to my more peaceful personality traits.
