English translation

Jesu, der aus großer Liebe
Jesus, who out of great love
In der Taufe mir verschriebe
has dedicated me in baptism
Leben, Heil und Seligkeit,
to life, salvation, and blessedness,
Hilf, daß ich mich dessen freue
help me to rejoice over this
Und den Gnadenbund erneue
and to renew the covenant of grace
In der ganzen Lebenszeit.
in my whole life long.
