English translation

Was Gott tut, das ist wohlgetan,
What God does is well done,
Er wird mich wohl bedenken;
He will think well upon me;
Er, als mein Arzt und Wundermann,
He, as my doctor and miracle-worker,
Wird mir nicht Gift einschenken
will not offer me poison
Vor Arzenei,
for medicine,
Gott ist getreu,
God is faithful,
Drum will ich auf ihn bauen
therefore I will rely on him
Und seiner Gnade trauen.
and trust in His grace.
