English translation

In meines Herzens Grunde
In the bottom of my heart
Dein Nam und Kreuz allein
Your name and Cross alone
Funkelt all Zeit und Stunde,
sparkles at all times and hours,
Drauf kann ich fröhlich sein.
for which I can be joyful.
Erschein mir in dem Bilde
Shine forth for me in that image
Zu Trost in meiner Not,
as comfort in my need,
Wie du, Herr Christ, so milde
how You, Lord Christ, so gently
Dich hast geblut’ zu Tod!
bled to death!
(“Valet will ich dir geben,” verse 3)
