Translation of French text:

Alleluia amen.

The heart of man plans his way,
But the Lord directs his steps.

We are all travellers in the roads of the earth,
We will fear no evil for the Lord is with us.

Teach us, Lord, to number our days,
That we may gain a heart of wisdom.

We seek for the light and our souls ache,
If the Lord wills, we will live and we will have peace.

Lord, I trust in You.
Into Your hands I commend my spirit.

Alleluia amen.

( inspired by: Proverb 16:9 / Psalm 22 / Psalm 90:12 / James 4:15 / Psalm 31:6 )
