Schafe können sicher weiden, wo ein guter Hirte wacht,
Schafe können sicher weiden, Schafe können sicher weiden,
wo ein guter Hirte wacht, wo ein guter Hirte wacht.
Wo Regenten wohl regieren, kann man Ruh' und Frieden spüren,
und was Lánder glücklich macht.
Wo Regenten wohl regieren, kann man Ruh' und Frieden spüren,
und was Länder glücklich macht.
