German.png German text

So fahr ich hin zu Jesu Christ,
Mein Arm tu ich ausstrecken;
So schlaf ich ein, und ruhe fein,
Kein Mensch kann mich aufwecken:
Denn Jesus Christus, Gottes Sohn,
Der wird die Himmelstür auftun,
Mich führen zum ewigen Leben.

English.png English translation

So I go to Jesus Christ,
And stretch out my arm to Him;
So I sleep, and rest easy,
No man can wake me:
For Jesus Christ, the Son of God,
Will open the doors of heaven,
And lead me to eternal life.

Translation by James Gibb
