Schläfert allen Sorgenkummer
All troublesome worries fall asleep
In den Schlummer
in the slumber
Kindlichen Vertrauens ein.
of childlike trust.
Gottes Augen, welche wachen
God’s eyes, which watch over
Und die unser Leitstern sein,
and are our guiding stars,
Werden alles selber machen.
will take care of it all themselves.
