1.
O Jesulein süß, o Jesulein mild!
Deins Vaters Willn hast du erfüllt;
Bist kommen aus dem Himmelreich,
Uns armen Menschen worden gleich,
O Jesulein süß, o Jesulein mild!

2.
O Jesulein süß, o Jesulein mild!
Mit Freuden hast du die Welt erfüllt,
Du kommst herab vom Himmelssaal,
Und tröst’st uns in dem Jammertal,
O Jesulein süß, o Jesulein mild!

3.
O Jesulein süß, o Jesulein mild!
Du bist der Lieb ein Ebenbild,
Zünd an in uns der Liebe Flamm,
Dass wir dich lieben all zusamm’,
O Jesulein süß, o Jesulein mild!

1.
O little one sweet,
O little one mild,
thy Father’s purpose thou hast fulfilled;
thou cam’st from heav’n to mortal ken
equal to be with us poor men,
O little one sweet,
O little one mild.

1. (literal)
O sweet little Jesus, O mild little Jesus,
the Father’s will you have fulfilled;
you have come from the heavenly kingdom,
(you have) become like us poor mortals,
O sweet little Jesus, O mild little Jesus.

2.
O little one sweet,
O little one mild,
with joy thou hast the whole world filled;
thou camest here from heaven’s domain
to bring men comfort in their pain,
O little one sweet,
O little one mild.

2. (literal)
O sweet little Jesus, O mild little Jesus,
you are the image of love:
ignite in us the flame of love,
that we all of one accord love you,
O sweet little Jesus, O mild little Jesus.
 
3.
O little one sweet,
O little one mild,
in thee love’s beauties are all distilled;
then light in us thy love’s bright flame,
that we may give thee back the same,
O little one sweet,
O little one mild.

4.
O little one sweet,
O little one mild,
help us to do as thou hast willed.
Lo, all we have belongs to thee!
Ah, keep us in our fealty!
O little one sweet,
O little one mild.
