Original text and translations

German.png German text

Herr, schicke, was du wilt,
Ein Liebes oder ein Leides!
Ich bin vergnügt, daß beides
Aus deinen Händen quillt.

Wollest mit Freuden
Und wollest mit Leiden
Uns nicht überschütten!
Doch in der Mitten
Liegt holdes Bescheiden.

English.png English translation

Lord, grant us what You will
of joy or of sorrow!
I am content that both flow
from Your own hands and will.

Lord, not with gladness
and neither with sadness
would You overwhelm us!
Midway between them,
a lovely proportion.
