Ich ruff zu dir Herr Jesu Christ/
  Ich bitt erhör mein klagen/
  verleyh mir gnad zu diser frist/
  laß mich doch nit verzagen/
  den rechten weg, O Herr, ich mein/
  den wöllest du mir geben/
  dir zu leben/
  mein nechsten nutz zu seyn/
  dein wort zu halten eben

I call to you, Lord Jesus Christ /
   Hear my complains,
   Give me your grace in this time/
   do not let me despair
   the right way, O Lord, I mean /
   you want to give me /
   to live /
   my to be useful to my neighbour/
   and even to keep your word.
