Un pont étroit

Emile Claus (1849-1924)
A Meeting on the Bridge

Ce monde
dans lequel nous virons
est tout un pont étroit.
La chose la plus importante
c'est de ne pas craindre
mais mets ta confiance
en Lui.
Pour quand tu mets
ta confiance
en Le Seigneur,
il n'y a rien à craindre
de tout.

Translation:

This world
in which we live
is all a narrow bridge.
The most important thing
is not to fear
but put your trust
in Him.
For when you put
your trust
in the Lord,
there's nothing to fear
at all.

This is a song we used to sing in church. I think it may actually be an old Jewish poem...? For an exercise, I translated the English into French.
