Geh auf, du Ostersonne, und offenbare dich,
Gib einen hellen Blick aus deinem Liebesherzen!
Ich bin noch blind an dir; komm, komm, erleuchte mich,
Verkläre dich in mir, zünd an des Glaubens Kerzen!
Und lass, o Lieb, in dir von allen meinen Sünden
Mich Rettung, Heil und Schutz und Seelenweide finden.

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Arise, you Easter sun, and reveal yourself;
From your heart of love, send forth a bright glance!
I am still blinded by you; come, come and illuminate me!
Glorify yourself within me, and light the candles of belief [in me]!
Let me in you, o love, find deliverance, salvation and protection
From all my sins, and [find] pasture for my soul.
