Was machst du an der Welt? Sie ist schon...

Language: German (Deutsch)

[Was machst du an der Welt? Sie ist schon gemacht,]1
Der Herr der Schöpfung hat alles bedacht.
Dein Los ist gefallen, verfolge die Weise,
Der Weg ist begonnen, vollende die Reise:
Denn Sorgen und Kummer verändern es nicht,
Sie schleudern dich ewig aus gleichem Gewicht.
