English translation

Nein, Gott is allezeit geflissen,
No, God is always concerned
Uns auf gutem Weg zu wissen
to make us know the good path
Unter seiner Gnade Schein.
through the light of His grace.
Ja, wenn wir verirret sein
Indeed, when we are lost
Und die rechte Bahn verlassen,
and have left the right path,
Will er uns gar suchen lassen.
He will have us searched for.
