English translation

Gottes Wort, das trüget nicht,
God’s word—this does not deceive;
Es geschieht, was er verspricht.
What he pledges—that happens.
Was er in dem Paradies
What he promised already in paradise
Und vor so viel hundert Jahren
And so many centuries ago
Denen Vätern schon verhiess,
To the patriarchs [of Israel],
Haben wir gottlob erfahren.
We—God be acclaimed—have experienced.
