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 Gnaden 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 tröstlich solln anhangen;
Shall adhere comfortingly to him;
Drauf singen wir zur Stund:
Thus we sing at this hour:
Amen, wir werdens erlangen,
Amen, we will obtain it,
Glaubn wir aus Herzens Grund.
If we believe from the bottom of our heart.
