Glory to God for All Things!

Слава Богу за всё (Glory to God for All Things)

Somewhere far away and long ago
Lived a wise and experienced elder.
And always he sang without ceasing:
Glory to God for sorrow and joy!
Glory to God for all things, glory to God for all things,
Glory to God for sorrow and joy!


The Lord gives us everything
For the salvation of soul.
Murmur not, then, if it is hard,
But instead be humble and always say:
"As you will it, Lord, so it is.
Glory to God for all things, glory to God for all things,
Glory to God for sorrow and joy!"


Learn how you are to do God's will at all times.
Maybe we will be persecuted
And with our pack on our back, with tears in our eyes
We will be spurned by our own family.
Glory to God for all things, glory to God for all things,
Glory to God for sorrow and joy!


When you are cheerful, well-fed and healthy,
And friends let you want for nought
Be watchful, and then never forget
To thank God, the all-Merciful.
Glory to God for all things, glory to God for all things,
Glory to God for sorrow and joy!


If someone wounds you with words
Or treats you unjustly,
Know this, my friend, God's will is there,
And to this always be humble.
Glory to God for all things, glory to God for all things,
Glory to God for sorrow and joy!


When we receive grief, sickness and sorrow,
Or in something we have to suffer,
Do not blame anyone, but always say:
So God treats all sinners
Glory to God for all things, glory to God for all things,
Glory to God for sorrow and joy!


Our years pass away, and our friends depart
Imperceptibly old age creeps up.
But be always determined and always say:
Thank God for the sorrow and the joy!
Glory to God for all things, glory to God for all things,
Glory to God for sorrow and joy!
