English translation

Lobe den Herren, der alles so herrlich regieret,
Praise the Lord, who governs everything so gloriously,
Der dich auf Adelers Fittichen sicher geführet,
Who has borne you securely on eagle’s pinions,
Der dich erhält,
Who upholds you
Wie es dir selber gefällt;
As is felicitous to you yourself.
Hast du nicht dieses verspüret?
Have you not sensed this?
