Selig sind, die da Leid tragen

Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE ITA
Selig sind, die da Leid tragen, 
denn sie sollen getröstet werden.

Die mit Tränen säen,
werden mit Freuden ernten. 
Sie gehen hin und weinen
und tragen edlen Samen, 
und kommen mit Freuden 
und bringen ihre Garben.

Benaventurats els afligits
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Benaventurats els afligits,
perquè seran consolats.

Els que sembren amb llàgrimes,
colliran la joia.
Se'n van plorant,
enduent-se precioses llavors
i tornaran plens de joia
portant llurs garbes.
