Gib dich zufrieden und sei still

Language: German (Deutsch)

Gib dich zufrieden und sei stille
In dem Gotte deines Lebens.
In ihm ruht aller Freuden Fülle,
Ohn ihn mühst du dich vergebens.
Er ist dein Quell und deine Sonne,
Scheint täglich hell zu deiner Wonne.
Gib dich zufrieden.

Réjouis‑toi et que soit tranquille

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

Réjouis-toi et que soit tranquille
En Dieu ta vie.
En lui repose toute la plénitude de la joie,
Sans lui tu te fatigues en vain.
En lui est ta source et ton soleil,
Chaque jour il brille clairement pour ton plaisir.
