German.png German text

Ach Herr, ach meiner schone,
nach deim Grimm mir nicht ablohne.
Denn deine Pfeil zumal
machen mir große Qual.

O weh, mein armes Herz
empfindet großen Schmerz.
O du mein lieber Herre Gott,
hilf mir in meiner großen Not.

English.png English translation

O Lord, O my protector,
cast Your ire not upon me,
For Your arrows
cause me such great agony.

O, my poor Heart
is greatly afflicted.
O Beloved Lord,
help me in my great poverty.
