Original text and translations

German.png German text

5  Herr, neige deine Himmel und fahr herab. Taste die Berge an, so rauchen sie,
6  Lass blitzen und zerstreue sie. Wirf deine Strahlen und schrecke sie.
7  Sende deine Hand aus der Höhe Und erlöse mich von großen Wassern. Und errette mich von der Hand der fremden Kinder.
9  Gott, ich will dir ein neues Lied singen, Ich will dir spielen auf dem Psalter von zehen Saiten.

5  Bow thy heavens, O Lord, and come down: touch the mountains, and they shall smoke.
6  Cast forth thy lightning, and tear them: shoot out thine arrows, and consume them.
7  Send down thine hand from above: deliver me, and take me out of the great waters, from the hand of strange children;
9  I will sing a new song unto thee, O God: and sing praises unto thee upon a ten-stringed lute.
