Geist und Seele wird verwirret,
Spirit and soul become confused
Wenn sie dich, mein Gott, betracht’.
when they contemplate You, my God.
Denn die Wunder, so sie kennet
For the miracles that they know
Und das Volk mit Jauchzen nennet,
and that people exultantly describe,
Hat sie taub und stumm gemacht.
has made them deaf and dumb.
