Dieses Gesang Buch Gehört Mir, \ Fronica \ Nislin.
Mein gott, ein reines herz doch lenke, zu \ danken dir ohn heucheley für dein \ gaben und geschenke Und väterliche \ Lieb und treu. Dein Vaterherz versorge \ fein die menschen, Vieh und Vögelein.
2 Mein gott, du hast uns lassen säen \ Den saamen in die erde dein; \ Durch deine gnade ists geschehen, \ Daß er also gewachsen sein. dein \ Vaterherz versorget fein Die \ menschen, Vieh und Vögelein.
Geschrieben den 14ten Jenner 1826.


This hymnal belongs to me, Fronica Nislin.
My God, direct a pure heart to thank you without hypocrisy for your gifts and presents and fatherly love and faithfulness. Your father-heart cares well for people, cattle and little birds.
2. My God, you let us sow seeds into your ground. Through your grace it happened that they grew. Your father-heart cares well for people, cattle and little birds.
Written the 14th of January 1826.
