(Martin Luther, 1539)
Ach, Herr, du Schöpfer aller Ding,
wie bist du worden so gering,
daß du da liegst auf dürrem Gras,
davon ein Rind und Esel aß!

English.png English translation

(Catherine Winkworth, 1865)
Ah Lord, who hast created all,
How hast Thou made Thee weak and small,
That Thou must choose Thy infant bed
Where ass and ox but lately fed!
