Leget euch dem Heiland unter,
Lay yourselves beneath the Savior,
Herzen, die ihr christlich seid!
hearts that are Christian!
Tragt ein unbefleckes Kleid
Wear the spotless garment
Eures Glaubens ihm entgegen,
of your faith before Him,
Leib und Leben und Vermögen
your body, your life, and your desires
Sei dem König itzt geweiht.
should now be consecrated to the King.
