Available translation(s): CAT ENG ENG FRE FRE ITA SPA
Herr! schicke, was du [willt]1,
Ein Liebes oder Leides;
Ich bin vergnügt, daß beides
Aus deinen Händen quillt.

Wollest mit Freuden 
Und wollest mit Leiden
Mich nicht überschütten!
Doch in der Mitten,
Liegt holdes Bescheiden.

F. Volkmann sets stanza 1

Senyor, envia’m el que tu vulguis
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Senyor, envia’m el que tu vulguis,
amor o pena;
estic content si ambdós
vénen de les teves mans.

Però no em vulguis
reblir amb joia
o sofrença!
Car entremig
es troba la veritable moderació.
