Komm, süßer Tod, komm selge Ruh!
Komm führe mich in Friede,
Weil ich der Welt bin müde,
Ach komm! ich wart auf dich,
Komm bald und führe mich,
Drück mir die Augen zu.
Komm, selge Ruh!

Come, sweet death, come blessed rest!
Come lead me to peace
For I am weary of the world,
Oh come! I wait for you,
Come soon and lead me,
Close my eyes.
Come, blessed rest!
