German Text

Ach, es bleibt in meiner Liebe
Lauter Unvollkommenheit!
Hab ich oftmals gleich den Willen,
Was Gott saget, zu erfüllen,
Fehlt mir’s doch an Möglichkeit.

English Translation

Ah, in my love there is still
nothing but imperfection!
Though I often have the will
to fulfill what God says,
yet I lack the ability.
