Laß dich nur nichts nicht [dauern]1
Mit [Trauern]2,
Sei stille! 
Wie Gott es fügt,
So sei vergnügt
Mein Wille.

Was willst du heute sorgen
Auf morgen?
Der Eine
steht allem [für]3;
Der gibt auch dir
das Deine.

Sei nur in allem Handel
Ohn Wandel,
Steh feste! 
Was Gott beschleußt,
Das ist und heißt
das Beste.4

Ne laisse rien te maintenir
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Ne laisse rien te maintenir
dans l'affliction,
Sois en paix !
Comme Dieu l'a ordonné,
Ainsi sera joyeuse
Ma volonté.

Pourquoi se tourmenter aujourd'hui
Pour demain ?
L'Unique
Est là pour tout ;
Il te donne aussi
Ton dû.

Dans toutes tes affaires sois
Sans changement,
Tiens bon !
Ce que Dieu décide,
Est le meilleur.
