German text

English translation

Jesu, laß uns auf dich sehen,
Jesus, let us look upon You,
Daß wir nicht
so that we do not
Auf den Sündenwegen gehen.
walk on the paths of sin.
Laß das Licht
Let the light
Deines Worts uns heller scheinen
of Your word shine brightly upon us,
Und dich jederzeit treu meinen.
and continually bring You to mind.
