Laß dich nur nichts nicht dauern
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): DUT DUT ENG FRE
Laß dich nur nichts nicht dauern
Mit Trauern,
Sei stille! 
Wie Gott es fügt,
So sei vergnügt
Mein Wille.

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

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

Amen.

M. Reger sets stanzas 1-3

Let nothing indeed make you endure grief
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
Let nothing indeed make you endure grief;
Be at peace! If God ordains it,
may my will accept it.




Why worry today about tomorrow?
God stands for all;
He also gives you what is yours.




In all your dealings be without whim -
stand firmly! That which God decides
is and means the best.




Amen.
