English translation

Gottlob! nun geht das Jahr zu Ende,
Praise God! now the year is coming to a close,
Das neue rücket schon heran.
the new one already approaches.
Gedenke, meine Seele, dran,
Think upon this, my soul,
Wieviel dir deines Gottes Hände
how much good God’s hands
Im alten Jahre Guts getan!
have done for you in the old year!
Stimm ihm ein frohes Danklied an;
Sound a happy song of thanks to Him;
So wird er ferner dein gedenken
so He will continue to think of you
Und mehr zum neuen Jahre schenken.
and send you even more for the new year.
