Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE
Ich aber bin elend, und mir ist wehe.

Herr, Herr, Gott, 
barmherzig und gnädig und geduldig
und von großer Gnade und Treue,
der du beweisest Gnade in tausend Glied,
und vergibst Missetat, Übertretung und Sünde,
und vor welchem niemand unschuldig ist.

Gott, Herr Gott, deine Hilfe schütze mich.

Ik echter lijd rampspoed
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Ik echter lijd rampspoed, ben vol van pijnen.
 
Heer, Heer, God,
Barmhartig, genadig  en geduldig,
Mild in hoge mate, betrouwbaar.
Gij die bewijst uw goedheid in elk geslacht
En vergeeft boze daad, overtreding en zonde,
En voor wie ook niemand onschuldig is.

God, laat behoeden mij uw hulp.
