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.

Plegaria
Language: Spanish (Español)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Envíame, ¡Señor!, lo que tú quieras,
el amor o la pena;
gusto me da que ambos
de tus manos procedan.

No de gozos empero, 
ni de pesares
quieras colmarme. 
Bien se halla entre ambos   
el dulce resignarse.
