German text

English translation

Sei Lob und Preis mit Ehren
Acclamation and praise with honor be
Gott Vater, Sohn, Heiligem Geist!
To God Father, Son, Holy Spirit,
Der woll in uns vermehren,
Who would increase in us
Was er uns aus Genad verheisst,
What he, out of mercy, promises us;
Dass wir ihm fest vertrauen,
That we may trust him steadfastly,
Gänzlich verlassn auf ihn,
Wholly depend on him,
Von Herzen auf ihn bauen,
Rely on him from the heart,
Dass unsr Herz, Mut und Sinn
That our heart, courage, and mind
Ihm festiglich anhangen;
Shall adhere comfortingly to him;
Darauf singn wir zur Stund:
Thus we sing at this hour:
Amen, wir werdens erlangen,
Amen, we will obtain it,
Gläubn wir aus Herzens Grund.
If we believe from the bottom of our heart.
