Gott, deine Güte reicht
so weit die Wolken gehen;
Du krönst uns mit Barmherzigkeit
und eilst, uns beizustehen.
Herr, meine Burg, mein Fels, mein Hort,
vernimm mein Flehn, merk auf mein Wort!
Denn ich will vor dir beten.

O Lord, thy goodness spreads around,
alike o'er all extended.
By thee we are with mercy crowned,
in danger's hour defended.
O Lord, my tower, my refuge here,
receive my tears, receive my prayer.
For I will pray before thee.
