English translation

Entziehe dich eilends, mein Herze, der Welt,
Withdraw yourself hurriedly, my heart, from the world,
Du findest im Himmel dein wahres Vergnügen.
you will find in heaven your true delight.
Wenn künftig dein Auge dein Heiland erblickt,
When your eye beholds your Savior in the future,
So wird erst dein sehnendes Herze erquickt,
then at last your longing heart will be revived,
So wird es in Jesu zufriedengestellt.
then it will be brought to rest in Jesus.
