English translation

Herr Gott, Beherrscher aller Dinge,
Lord God, ruler of all things,
Der alles hat, regiert und trät,
who owns, controls, and handles everything,
Durch den, was Odem hat, sich regt,
through Whom all that has breath stirs itself,
Wir alle sind viel zu geringe
we are all much too insignificant
Der Güte und Barmherzigkeit,
for the goodness and mercy
Womit du uns von Kindesbeinen
with which, since our childhood
Bis auf den Augenblick erfreut.
until this very moment, you have delighted us.
