Lass, o Herr, mich Hülfe finden,
neig’ dich gnädig meinem Flehn,
willst gedenken du der Sünden,
nimmermehr kann ich besteh’n.
 
Soll mein Sorgen ewig dauern,
sollen Feinde spotten mein?
Schwach und hülflos soll ich trauern
und von dir vergessen sein?

Lass, o Herr, mich Hülfe finden,
neig’ dich gnädig meinem Flehn,
willst gedenken du der Sünden,
nimmermehr kann ich besteh’n.
Nimmermehr!

Lord, I flee to Thee for refuge,
Bow Thine ear unto my pray'r;
If my sins Thou shouldst remember,
Evermore must I despair.

Shall my troubles last for ever?
Is grief my daily lot?
Weak and helpless must I languish,
By my God, alas, forgot.

Lord, I flee…
