English translation

Mein Jesus ist erstanden,
My Jesus is arisen,
Allein, was schreckt mich noch?
but what still frightens me?
Mein Glaube kennt des Heilands Sieg,
My faith knows the victory of the Savior,
Doch fühlt mein Herze Streit und Krieg,
yet my heart is filled with strife and battle,
Mein Heil, erscheine doch!
my Savior, only appear!
