Der Hüter Israels entschläft noch schlummert nicht,
Es ist annoch sein Angesicht
Der Schatten unsrer rechten Hand;
Und das gesamte Land
Hat sein Gewächs im Überfluss gegeben.
Wer kann dich, Herr, genug davor erheben?

 

The guardian of Israel neither sleeps nor slumbers,
his face is continually
the shadow at our right hand;
and the whole land

Drum kömmt alles Fleisch zu dir.

 

God, we give thanks for your kindness,
since your fatherly disposition
lasts eternally for ever and ever.
You forgive our transgression,

O Leipziger Jerusalem, vergnüge dich an deinem Feste!

Und die Gerechtigkeit bewohnet die Paläste.
Ach bitte, dass dein Ruhm und Licht
Also beständig möge dauern!

 

O Jerusalem of Leipzig, take delight in your festival!
Peace is still within your walls,
the seats of judgement still stand,
and justice inhabits the palaces.
Ah pray that your fame and light
