English translation

Der Heiland kennet ja die Seinen,
The Savior knows His own indeed,
Wenn ihre Hoffnung hilflos liegt.
when their hope lies helpless.
Wenn Fleisch und Geist in ihnen streiten,
When flesh and spirit battle each other,
So steht er ihnen selbst zur Seiten,
then He Himself stands at their side,
Damit zuletzt der Glaube siegt.
so that faith triumphs in the end.
