Original text and translations

German.png German text

OB ich schon arm und elend bin/
so führ ich doch ein steten sinn/
hoffnung thut mich ernehren/
was mir von Gott beschaffen ist/
kan mir kein mensch nit wehren.

English.png English translation

Though poor and miserable
still I keep a steady mind.
Hope will uphold me.
What God has given unto me
no man can take from me.
