Jesus soll mein alles sein,
Jesus shall be my everything,
Jesus soll mein Angang bleiben,
Jesus shall remain my beginning,
Jesus ist mein Freudenschein,
Jesus is my light of joy,
Jesu will ich mich verschreiben.
I will ascribe myself to Jesus.
Jesus hilft mir durch sein Blut,
Jesus helps me through his blood,
Jesus macht mein Ende gut.
Jesus shall make my end a good one.
