Was betrübst du dich, meine Seele, und bist so unruhig in mir?
Harre auf Gott; denn ich werde ihm noch danken, daß er meines Angesichtes Hilfe und mein Gott ist.
Was betrübst du dich, meine Seele?

English.png English translation

Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me?
Hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.
Why art thou cast down, O my soul?
