English translation

Ich traue seiner Gnaden,
I trust his mercy
Die mich vor allem Schaden,
That protects me from all injury,
Vor allem Übel schützt.
From all evil.
Leb ich nach seinen Gesetzen,
If I live according to his laws,
So wird mich nichts verletzen,
Then nothing will harm me;
Nichts fehlen, was mir nützt.
Nothing will be lacking that is of benefit to me.
