Language: German (Deutsch) 
Ich bin ein guter Hirte, und kenne die Meinen,
und bin bekannt den Meinen, so wie mich mein
Vater kennet.  Und andere Schafe hab ich noch,
die nicht aus dieser Hürde sind, auch selbige
muß ich führen, und sie werden meine Stimme
hören, und wird Eine Heerde, und Ein Hirte sein.

I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep,
and am known of mine.  As the Father knoweth me,
even so know I the Father: [and I lay down my life for the sheep.] And other sheep I have,
which are not of this fold: them also 
I must bring, and they shall hear my voice;
and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.
