German Text

Jesu, Brunnquell aller Gnaden,
Labe mich elenden Gast,
Weil du mich berufen hast!
Ich bin matt, schwach und beladen,
Ach! erquicke meine Seele,
Ach! wie hungert mich nach dir!
Lebensbrot, das ich erwähle,
Komm, vereine dich mit mir!

English Translation

Jesus, fountainhead of grace,
nourish me, a wretched guest,
since you have invited me!
I am weary, weak and burdened,
ah! refresh my soul,
ah! how I hunger for You!
Bread of life, which I choose,
come, unite Yourself with me!

Notes

One part is lost, hence the label “strumento obbligato.” See note in Neue Bach-Ausgabe.
