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 gladness or of sorrow!
I am content that both flow from Your own hands and will.
Pray, not with gladness, and pray, not with sadness, would You overwhelm us!
Midway between lies the sweetest proportion.
