English translation

Gott, du hast es wohl gefüget,
God, you have well accomplished,
Was uns itzo widerfährt.
what now has happened to us.
Drum laßt uns auf ihn stets trauen
Therefore let us always trust in him
Und auf seine Gnade bauen,
and rely upon his grace,
Denn er hat uns dies beschert,
for he has bestowed this upon us,
Was uns ewig nun vergnüget.
which now will delight us for ever.
