Original text and translations

English.png English text

Where'er the greatest sins abound,
by grace they are exceeded;
Thy helping hand is always found
with aid where aid is needed.
Our Shepherd good and true is He
who will at last His Israel free
from all their sin and sorrow.

Hoop, Israel, op God de Heer
die rijk is aan genade.
Want Hij verlaat u nimmermeer,
al kiest gij ook ten kwade.
Hij leidt u door de woestenij
en maakt gans Israel eens vrij
van ongerechtigheden.
