German text

English translation

Jesu, deine Passion
Jesus, Your passion
Ist mir lauter Freude,
is pure joy to me,
Deine Wunden, Kron, und Hohn
Your wounds, thorns and shame
Meines Herzens Weide.
my heart’s pasture;
Meine Seel auf Rosen geht,
my soul walks on roses
Wenn ich dran gedenke,
when I think upon it;
In dem Himmel eine Stätt
grant a place in heaven
Mir deswegen schenke!
for me for its sake.
(“Jesu Leiden, Pein und Tod,” verse 33)
