German.png German text

O, Herr Jesu Christe, doch nicht vorübergeh, bleib mit deim Wort an diesem Ort.
Dein heilge Sakrament erhalt an diesem End, sonst sein wir wie die Schaf verirrt.
Ach weid’ uns selbst, du guter Hirt.

O Lord Jesus Christ, do not go Your way, but remain in this place with Your word.
Keep here Your blessed sacraments; otherwise we would become lost sheep.
O lead us to the pastures, You, our good Shepherd.
