Original text and translations

German.png German text

Herr! schicke, was du willt,
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.

English.png English translation

Lord, grant what Thou wilt
Of love or of suffering!
I am satisfied that both
Flow from your hands.

Do not will with joy
Nor with suffering
To overwhelm me.
For in the middle lies
the blessed apportionment.
