Die schäumenden Wellen von Belials...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Die schäumenden Wellen von Belials Bächen
Verdoppeln die Wut.
Ein Christ soll zwar wie Wellen stehn,
Wenn Trübsalswinde um ihn gehn,
Doch suchet die stürmende Flut
Die Kräfte des Glaubens zu schwächen.

Les vagues écumantes des ruisseaux de Bélial

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

Les vagues écumantes des ruisseaux de Bélial
Redoublent leur rage.
Un chrétien doit se tenir comme un roc,
Quand les vents de l'affliction arrivent sur lui,
Car le flot tempétueux cherche
À affaiblir la force de la foi.
