English Translation

1

Herr, wie du willst, so schick's mit mir
Im Leben und im Sterben!
Allein zu dir steht mein' Begier,
Laß mich, Herr, nicht verderben!
Erhalt mich nur in deiner Huld,
Sonst, wie du willst, gib mir Geduld,
Denn dein Will' ist der beste.

Lord, deal with me as you wish
in living and in dying!
Only for you is my desire,
Lord, do not let me perish!
Preserve me in your grace,
but , whatever you will, give me patience,
for your will is the best.

2

Zucht, Ehr' und Treu' verleih mir, Herr,
Und Lieb' zu deinem Worte!
Behüt mich, Herr, vor falscher Lehr'
Und gib mir hier und dorte,
Was dient zu meiner Seligkeit.
Wend ab all' Ungerechtigkeit
In meinem ganzen Leben!

Modesty, honour and faithfulness bestow on me, Lord,
and love for your word!
Guard me, Lord, from false teaching
and give me here and hereafter
what serves for my happiness.
Turn me away from injustice
in my whole life!

3

Soll ich einmal nach deinem Rat
Von dieser Welt abscheiden,
Verleih, o Herr, mir deine Gnad',
Daß es gescheh' mit Freuden.
Mein Leib und Seel' befehl' ich dir.
O Herr, ein selig End' gib mir
Durch Jesum Christum! Amen.

If I have one day according to your plan
to depart from this life,
bestow on me, O Lord, your mercy,
so that this may happen joyfully.
My body and soul I entrust to you.
O Lord, grant me a blessed end
through Jesus Christ. Amen
