Chorale Text

Auf meinen lieben Gott
Trau' ich in Angst und Not,
Der kann mich allzeit retten
Aus Trübsal, Angst und Nöten,
Mein Unglück kann er wenden,
Steht all's in seinen Händen.


In my beloved God
I trust in fear and need;
He can me e'er deliver
From sadness, fear and trouble.
My sorrow can he alter,
For all rests in his hands now.
--Tr. Z. Philip Ambrose (used by permission)
