English translation

Aus Gottes milden Vaterhänden
From God’s gentle, fatherly hands
Fließt seiner Kinder Wohlergehn.
Flow the good fortunes of his children.
Er kann das Wahre, Gute schenken,
He can grant us truth and goodness,
Er gibt uns mehr, als wir gedenken,
He gives us more than we even think of,
Und besser, als wir es verstehn.
And better than we even understand.
