Unsere Väter hofften auf dich;
und da sie hofften, halfst du ihnen aus.
Zu dir schrieen sie und wurden errettet;
sie hofften auf dich und wurden nicht zu Schanden.
Der Herr wird seinem Volk Kraft geben;
der Herr wird sein Volk segnen mit Frieden.

Onze voorvaad’ren hoopten op U
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Onze voorvaad’ren hoopten op U;
En daar zij hoopten maakte Gij hen vrij.
Tot U riepen zij en zagen hun redding;
Zij hoopten op U en werden niet te schande.

De Heer zal aan zijn volk kracht geven;
De Heer zal zijn volk zegenen met vrede.
