German.png German text

Nun lob, mein' Seel', den Herren,
was in mir ist, den Namen sein.
Sein Wohltat tut er mehren,
vergiß es nicht, o Herze mein.
Hat dir dein' Sünd' vergeben
Und heilt dein Schwachheit groß,
errett' dein armes Leben,
nimmt dich in seinen Schoß,
mit reichem Trost beschüttet,
verjünget dem Adler gleich;
der König schafft Recht, behütet,
die leiden in seinem Reich.

Now praise, my soul, the Lord,
all that is in me praise his name!
He adds to his acts of kindness,
do not forget this, oh my heart!
He has forgiven you your sins,
and healed your great weakness.
He rescues your poor life,
he takes you into his bosom,
pours down just consolation,
renews you like the eagle,
the king acts justly, protects
those who suffer in his kingdom.
