All solch dein Güt wir preisen,
We praise all these Your goodnesses,
Vater ins Himmels Thron,
Father on the throne of heaven,
Die du uns tust beweisen
that You reveal Yourself to us
Durch Christum, deinen Sohn,
through Christ, Your son,
Und bitten ferner dich:
and we ask further of You:
Gib uns ein friedsam Jahre,
give us a peaceful year,
Für allem Leid bewahre
protect us from all sorrow
Und nähr uns mildiglich.
and nourish us gently.
(“Helft mir Gotts Güte preisen,” verse 6)
