German.png German text

Ach, wann kommt die Zeit heran,
daß ich werde schauen an
meinen liebsten Jesum Christ,
der mein Lieb und Leben ist?

Allzeit weißt du, daß ich mich
nicht erhalten kann ohn dich,
weil du, liebster Jesu Christ,
meines Lebens Leben bist.

Drum so komm doch bald zu mir
und erfreue mich mit dir,
schließ mich in die Arme ein,
die für mich verwundet sein.

Ah, when will come the time
That I behold face to face
My beloved Jesus Christ,
Who is my Love and Life?

You have ever known that I
Cannot survive without you;
For You, dearest Jesus Christ,
Are my very Life of life.

So then come right soon to me
And let me rejoice with You,
Fold me in your arms,
Which were wounded for me.
