Dein Wille, Herr, geschehe!

Language: German (Deutsch)

Dein Wille, Herr, geschehe!
Verdunkelt schweigt das Land,
Im Zug der Wetter sehe
ich schauernd deine Hand.
O mit uns Sündern gehe
erbarmend ins Gericht!
Ich beug' im tiefsten Wehe
zum Staub mein Angesicht.
Dein Wille, Herr, geschehe!

Que ta volonté, Seigneur, soit faite !

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Que ta volonté, Seigneur, soit faite !
La terre s'assombrit, se tait,
Dans l'avancée de la tempête je
Vois, en tremblant, ta main.
Oh, avec nous, pécheurs, sois
Miséricordieux dans ton jugement !
J'incline dans le plus grand malheur
Jusqu'à la poussière mon visage.
Que ta volonté, Seigneur, soit faite !
