(original spelling)
Sihe an die Werck Gottes, den wer kan daß schlecht machen das er krümmet?
Am guten Tag sey guter Dinge, und den bösen Tag nimm auch für gut; den diesen schaffet Gott neben jenem,
daß der Mensch nicht wissen soll, was künfftig ist.

(modernized spelling)
Siehe an die Werk Gottes, den wer kann das schlecht machen das er krümmet?
Am guten Tag sei guter Dinge, und den bösen Tag nimm auch für gut; den diesen schaffet Gott neben jenem,
daß der Mensch nicht wissen soll, was künftig ist.

Consider what God has done: Who can straighten what he has made crooked?
When times are good, be happy; but when times are bad, consider: God has made the one as well as the other.
Therefore, a man cannot discover anything about his future.
