German Text

Zedern müssen von den Winden
Oft viel Ungemach empfinden,
Oftmals werden sie verkehrt.
Rat und Tat auf Gott gestellet,
Achtet nicht, was widerbellet,
Denn sein Wort ganz anders lehrt.

English Translation

Cedars must, before the winds,
often feel much hardship,
often they will be destroyed.
Place your words and deeds before God,
Heed not what howls against you,
Since his Word teaches otherwise.
