English translation

Hier, in meines Vaters Stätte,
Here, in My Father’s place,
Findt mich ein betrübter Geist.
a troubled spirit finds Me.
Da kannst du mich sicher finden
There you can surely find
Und dein Herz mit mir verbinden,
Me and join your heart to Mine,
Weil dies meine Wohnung heißt.
since this is known as My dwelling.
