English translation

Hat er es denn beschlossen,
If he has determined it so,
So will ich unverdrossen
Then I will go unwearily
An mein Verhängnis gehn!
About my [God-given] lot.
Kein Unfall unter allen
Not one mishap among them all
Soll mir zu harte fallen,
Shall come down too harshly on me;
Ich will ihn überstehn.
I will endure it.
