English translation

So weiß der Herr die Seinen
Thus the Lord knows
aus der Zerstreuung zu vereinen,
to bring together his own out of dispersal,
im Kummer zu erfreun.
to bring joy in grief.
Wenn mich die Feinde hassen,
If my enemies hate me,
die Freunde mich verlassen,
my friends abandon me,
will ich mich dennoch fassen.
yet will I remain serene.
Mein Heiland lebt, und ich bin sein.
My Savior lives, and I am His.
