Schicksal

Fate

Und wie ich jederzeit bedacht
And just as I have ever been mindful,
Mit aller Sorg und Macht,
With all care and might,
Weil du es wert bist, dich zu schützen
To protect you, because you are worthy of it,
Und wider alles dich zu unterstützen,
And to support you against all things,
So hör ich auch nicht ferner auf,
So I will also henceforth not cease
Vor dich zu wachen
To watch over you,
Und deines Ruhmes Ehrenlauf
And to make your renown’s path of honor
Erweiterter und blühender zu machen.
More extended and more thriving.
