Ja, Petre, geh hinaus und weine,
Yes, Peter, go out and weep,
ja, weine, weine bitterlich.
yes, weep, weep bitterly.
Denk zwar an deinen Fall zurück,
And think back on your fall,
doch denke auch an Jesu Blick.

In dieses Blickes holdem Scheine
In the sweet light of this glance
zeigt sich ein Gnadenlicht für dich.
