German Text

Geduld, Geduld!
Wenn mich falsche Zungen stechen.
Leid ich wider meine Schuld
Schimpf und Spott,
Ei, so mag der liebe Gott
Meines Herzens Unschuld rächen.

Patience, patience!
When false tongues pierce.
Although I suffer, contrary to my due,
shame and scorn,
indeed, dear God shall
revenge the innocence of my heart.
