Laß dich nur nichts nicht [dauern]1
Mit [Trauern]2,
Sei stille! 
Wie Gott es fügt,
So sei vergnügt
Mein Wille.

Was willst du heute sorgen
Auf morgen?
Der Eine
steht allem [für]3;
Der gibt auch dir
das Deine.

Sei nur in allem Handel
Ohn Wandel,
Steh feste! 
Was Gott beschleußt,
Das ist und heißt
das Beste.4

Language: Spanish (Español)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Que nada te aflija
por mucho tiempo.
¡Estate tranquilo!
Como Dios quiera,
sea así conforme
mi voluntad.

¿A qué preocuparse hoy

Él también te dará
lo tuyo.

Sé tú, en todas tus acciones,
¡Mantente firme!
Lo que Dios dispone
es y significa
lo mejor.
