German Text

Ermuntre dich: dein Heiland klopft,
Ach, öffne bald die Herzenspforte!

Ob du gleich in entzückter Lust
Nur halb gebrochne Freudenworte
Zu deinem Jesu sagen mußt.

English Translation

Arouse yourself: your Savior knocks,
ah, quickly open the gate of your heart!

Even though, in enraptured delight,
only half-broken words of joy
can you speak to your Jesus.
