Du Friedefürst, Herr Jesu Christ,
Wahr' Mensch und wahrer Gott,
Ein starker Nothelfer du bist
Im Leben und im Tod.
Drum wir allein
Im Namen dein
Zu deinem Vater schreien.

Recht große Not uns stößet an
von Krieg und Ungemach,
daraus uns niemand helfen kann
denn du, drum führ die Sach.
Den Vater bitt,
daß er ja nit
im Zorn mit uns verfahre.

Gedenk, Herr, jetzt an dein Amt,
daß du ein Friedfürst bist,
und hilf uns gnädig allesamt
jetzt und zu aller Frist.
Laß uns hinfort
dein gnädig Wort
im Fried noch länger schallen.

You prince of peace, Lord Jesus Christ,
true man and true God,
you are a strong helper in distress,
in life and death.
Therefore we only
in your name
cry to your Father!

Really great distress presses on us
because of war and hardship,
in this situation no one can help us
but you; therefore guide our affairs.
Ask your Father
that he may not
wish to deal with us in anger!

Be mindful, Lord, now of your office,
that you are a prince of peace,
and graciously help us in all ways
now at this time.
Grant that henceforth
your divine word
may resound still longer in peace!
