O Jesu Christ, meins Lebens Licht
Mein Hort, mein Trost, mein Zuversicht,
Auf Erden bin ich nur ein Gast
Und drückt mich sehr der Sünden Last.

 

O Gesù Cristo, luce della mia vita,
mio rifugio, mia consolazione, mia certezza,
sulla terra sono solo un ospite
e molto schiacciato dal carico dei peccati.

     

Lasciando questo mondo, Signore, confido
che mi guiderai nel mio ultimo viaggio.
Spalancami le porte del cielo
quando avrò concluso il corso della mia vita.
