English translation

Das Brausen von den rauhen Winden
The roaring of the rough winds
Macht, daß wir volle Ähren finden.
helps us find full ears of corn.
Des Kreuzes Ungestüm schafft bei den Christen
The turbulence of the cross brings fruit for
Drum laßt uns alle unser Leben
therefore let us all our lives
Dem weisen Herrscher ganz ergeben.
give ourself completely to our wise Ruler.
Küßt seines Sohnes Hand, verehrt die treue Zucht.
Kiss His Son’s hand, respect the loving discipline.
