Original text and translations

German.png German text

Ich freue mich im Herren, und meine Seele ist fröhlich in meinem Gott,
denn er hat mich angezogen mit den Kleidern des Heiles und mit dem Rock der Gerechtigkeit gekleidet.
Wie einen Bräutigam mit priesterlichem Schmuck gezieret und wie eine Braut in ihrem Geschmeide bärdet.

English.png English translation

I delight greatly in the Lord; my soul rejoices in my God.
For He has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness,
as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
