English translation

Eilt, ihr angefochtnen Seelen,
Hurry, you tempted souls,
Geht aus euren Marterhöhlen,
come out of your caves of torment,
Eilt—Wohin?—nach Golgatha!
hurry—where?—to Golgatha!
Nehmet an des Glaubens Flügel,
Take up the wings of faith,
Flieht—Wohin?—zum Kreuzeshügel,
fly—where?—to the Hill of the Cross,
Eure Wohlfahrt blüht allda!
Your salvation blooms there!
