German Text

Du hast lassen Wunden schlagen,
dich erbärmlich richten zu,
um zu heilen meine Plagen,
um zu setzen mich in Ruh.
Ach, du hast, zu meinem Segen,
lassen dich mit Fluch belegen.
Tausend, tausendmal sei dir,
liebster Jesu, Dank dafür.

English Translation

You have allowed wounds
to rain down on you miserably,
to heal my troubles,
to set me in peace.
Ah, you have, for my blessing,
let yourself be cursed.
Thousand, thousandfold thanks be to you,
dearest Jesus, for it.
