Bist du bei mir

Language: German (Deutsch)

Bist du bei mir, geh' ich mit Freuden
zum Sterben und zu meiner Ruh'.
Ach, wie vergnügt wär' so mein Ende,
es drückten deine lieben [schönen]1 Hände
mir die getreuen Augen zu!


Translation(s): ENG ENG FRE IRI ITA SPA

1 omitted by Bachlund and Stölzel.
Note: the misattribution to Bach is probably due to his including the song in his Anna Magdalena Songbook.

If you are with me

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

If you are with me, I will gladly go
to [my] death and to my rest.
Ah, how pleasant would my end be
if your dear, fair hands shut
my faithful eyes!
