Lyrics: Johann Agricola

Ich ruf zu dir, Herr Jesu Christ,
ich bitt erhör mein Klagen;
verleih mir Gnad zu dieser Frist,
laß mich doch nicht verzagen.
Den rechten Glauben, Herr, ich mein,
den wollest du mir geben, dir zu leben,
mein'm Nächsten Nutz zu sein,
dein Wort zu halten eben.

I call to You, Lord Jesus Christ,
I beg You, hear my cries,
grant me mercy at this time,
let me not despair.
The true faith, Lord,
that which You would give me, I mean,
so I may live for You,
to be of use to my neighbour,
and to keep Your word faithfully.
