English translation

Ich will nun hassen
I now will hate
Und alles lassen,
and leave behind everything,
Was dir, mein Gott, zuwider ist.
which is contrary to You, my God.
Ich will dich nicht betrüben,
I will not cause You trouble,
Hingegen herzlich lieben,
rather I will heartily love You,
Weil du mir so genädig bist.
since You have been so gracious to me.
