Unsere Trübsal, die zeitlich und leicht ist,

die wir nicht sehen auf das Sichtbare,
sondern auf das Unsichtbare.

Notre douleur
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Notre douleur, qui est temporaire et légère,
Crée une éternelle
Et importante, au-delà de toute mesure, gloire,
Nous ne la voyons pas dans le monde visible,
Mais dans l’invisible.
