Gesegnet sei, durch den die Welt entstund;

Er schuf das Paradies mit ew'gem Licht,
Er schuf die Schönheit und dein Angesicht.

Blessed be He through whom the world arose
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
 Blessed be He through whom the world arose;
 How excellently he created it in every way!
 He created the sea with its infinite depths,
 He created the ships that glide over it,
 He created Paradise with eternal light,
 He created beauty and your face.
