Laß dich nur nichts nicht tauren

Paul Fleming


Laß dich nur nichts nicht tauren
     Mit Trauren;
     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.



Do not let yourself be depressed by sadness; be calm, however God may dispose, be content with it, my will.

Why worry today about tomorrow? There is One who controls everything; He will give you your share too.

Be constant in everything you undertake, stand firm. What God ordains is and is known to be best.
