Gebet für den Landesfürsten.
Prayer for the Sovereign.
Verleihe deine Rechte dem König! (Psalms 72, 1.)
Grant your rights to the king! (Psalms 72:1)
Allmächtiger Gott und Herr, der du sendest deine Boten und sie rüstest mit deiner Kraft, daß sie den Schwachen Schutz, den Armen und den Leidenden Trost und Frieden bringen, der du Könige und Fürsten hast berufen, und erhöhet, und verherrlicht auf Erden, daß sie in deinem beiligen Namen den Frieden schirmen, Licht und Recht verbreiten, alle milde gute Gaben bringen Jeder seinem Volke, zu dir beten wir in dieser Stunde als treue Unterthanen für ihren Herrn, wie Kinder für ihren Vater beten.
Almighty God and Lord, who sends your messengers and equips them with your power, that they may bring protection to the weak, comfort and peace to the poor and the suffering, who has called kings and princes, and exalted and glorified them on earth, that they may shield peace in your holy name, spread light and justice, and bring every kind and good gift to his people, to you we pray in this hour as faithful subjects for their lord, as children pray for their father.
Verleihe deinen göttlichen Schutz und Beistand unserm Fürsten und Herrn, deinem Gesalbten, dem Kaiser Ferdinand Ⅰ.
Grant your divine protection and assistance to our prince and lord, your anointed, the Emperor Ferdinand Ⅰ.[1] Ferdinand I (19 April 1793 – 29 June 1875) was the Emperor of Austria from March 1835 until his abdication in December 1848. He was also King of Hungary, Croatia and Bohemia (as Ferdinand V), King of Lombardy–Venetia and holder of many other lesser titles (see grand title of the Emperor of Austria). Due to his rocky, passive but well-intentioned character, he gained the sobriquet The Benign (German: Der Gütige) or The Benevolent (Czech: Ferdinand Dobrotivý, Polish: Ferdynand Dobrotliwy). 
Mehre seine Tage, fröne ihn mit Sieg und Ruhm und Herrlichkeit, rüste ihn mit Jugendkraft und Muth; verleihe ihm Einsicht, Rath und Stärke, sein Volf in Weisheit zu regieren, es auf die Höhen des Lebens zu geleiten in Freundlichkeit und Milde.

Segne du alle Angehörigen des erhabenen, allverehrten und geliebten Fürstenstammes, daß sie als die Ersten seines Reichs, die seinem Throne und seinem Herzen die Nächsten sind, sich aller Segnungen, die Ihm beschieden sind, mit Ihm erfreuen.
Bless all the members of the exalted, universally venerated and beloved princely tribe, so that they, as the first of his kingdom, the closest to his throne and his heart, may enjoy with him all the blessings that are granted to him.
Segne du das gesammte Vaterland, daß Eintracht, Friede und Liebe seine Stämme einige und verbinde, und einen einigen Bruderbund aus ihnen bilde, daß Fruchtbarkeit und Fülle stets im Lande sei, Licht und Wissensschaft das Volk erhöhe, Treue und Liebe seine Stärke, Tugend und Gottesfurcht die innere Lebensfraft im Volke sei.
Bless the entire fatherland, that harmony, peace and love unite and bind its tribes, and form a united brotherly alliance of them, that fertility and abundance may always be in the land, that light and knowledge may elevate the people, that loyalty and love may be its strength, and that virtue and the fear of God may be the inner life force in the people.
Gieb, o Gott! daß jedes Streben und Wirken gelinge, und auch wir des Segens theilhaft werden, unsere Wünsche und Bitten Erhörung finden, wir einen Ehrenstand gewinnen mögen im Vaterlande, und Wohlwollen finden unter den Menschen, wie wir Gnade und Erbarmen zu finden hoffen, Herr, vor deinem Weltenthrone. Amen.
Grant, O God, that every striving and activity may succeed, and that we too may be blessed, that our wishes and petitions may be heard, that we may gain a position of honor in the fatherland, and find goodwill among men, as we hope to find grace and mercy, Lord, before your worldly throne. Amen.
