Der Herr hat Guts an uns getan,
The Lord has done good things for us,
Des sind wir alle fröhlich.
therefore we all rejoice.
Er seh die teuren Väter an
He gazes upon our faithful fathers,
Und halte auf unzählig
and supports them in untold
Und späte lange Jahre naus
and long-lasting years
In ihrem Regimente Haus,
in the house of their government,
So wollen wir ihn preisen.
therefore we would praise Him.
