German.png German text

OB ich schon arm und elend bin/
  so führ ich doch ein steten sinn/
  hoffnung thut mich ernehren/
  was mir von Gott beschaffen ist/
  kan mir kein mensch nit wehren.

English.png English translation

Though poor and miserable
  still I keep a steady mind.
  Hope will uphold me.
  What God has given unto me
  no man can take from me.
