English translation

Schließe, mein Herze, dies selige Wunder
Enclose, my heart, these blessed miracles
Fest in deinem Glauben ein!
fast within your faith!
Lasse dies Wunder, die göttlichen Werke,
Let these wonders, these divine works,
Immer zur Stärke
forever be the reinforcement
Deines schwachen Glaubens sein!
of your weak faith!
