Taize song, 'Behuete mich, Gott'

Just heard this song on YouTube, sung by the Taizé community. The music runs through my head during this pandemic and season of Lent, (like after visiting Disneyland, "It's a small world after all"

Behüte* mich, Gott. Ich vertraue Dir
Du zeigst mir den Weg zum Leben.
Bei Dir ist Freude, Freude in Fülle.



My translation to fit the tempo of the music.

Keep* me, O God, I trust in You.
You show me the way for living.
With You is joy, joy in your Presence.

*my understanding is that the word 'behüten' means to keep/ protect in the sense of 'keep me safe in your hut'

2. Keep you safe "in my hut?"

I'll do that when we're on Gilligan's Island together.
