Original text and translations

German.png German text

Gott ist mein trost/
hat mich erlöst,
mit seinem blut so rothe/
er wil stets seyn
der helfer mein/
in aller angst und nothe.

Ob gleich die welt mir fast nachstelt,
will ich doch nit verzagen/
dann wer Gott trawt/
hat wohl gebrawt/
thut nach der welt nit fragen.

God is my consolation
and he saved me,
with his blood so red
he will always be
my helper
n every fear and distress.

Although the world is allways tempting me,
I do not despair
as he who trusts in God
has all he needs
and does not ask for the world.
