English translation

Gott hat alles wohlgemacht.
God has made everything well.
Seine Liebe, seine Treu
His love, his faithfulness
Wird uns alle Tage neu.
is renewed for us daily.
Wenn uns Angst und Kummer drücket,
When fear and grief oppress us,
Hat er reichen Trost geschicket,
He has sent us lavish comfort,
Weil er täglich für uns wacht.
since He watches over us daily.
Gott hat alles wohlgemacht.
God has made everything well.
