4  Ihr Heiligen, lobsinget dem Herren, danket und preiset seine Herrlichkeit,
5  denn sein Zorn währet einen Augenblick, und er hat Lust zum Leben.
6  Den Abend lang währet das Weinen, aber des Morgens die Freude.

English.png English translation

4  Sing unto the Lord, o ye saints of His, and give thanks at the remembrance of His holiness,
5  for His anger endureth but for a moment, and in His favour is life.
6  Weeping may endure for a night; but joy cometh in the morning.
