English translation

Saget, saget mir geschwinde,
Tell me, tell me quickly,
Saget, wo ich Jesum finde,
say where I can find Jesus,
Welchen meine Seele liebt!
whom my soul loves!
Komm doch, komm, umfasse mich;
O come, come, embrace me;
Denn mein Herz ist ohne dich
for without you my heart is
Ganz verwaiset und betrübt.
completely orphaned and wretched.
