1. Seufzer [sung text not yet checked]

Dein Liebesfeuer, 
Ach Herr! wie teuer
Wollt' ich es hegen,
Wollt' ich es pflegen! 
Hab's nicht geheget,
Und nicht gepfleget,
Bin tot im Herzen --
O Höllenschmerzen!

Note: the poem is preceded by the Latin inscription
 Jesu benigne!
 A cuius igne
 Opto flagrare
 Et Te amare:
 Cur non flagravi?
 Cur non amavi
 Te, Jesu Christe?
 - O frigus triste!

2. Gebet [sung text not yet checked]

Herr! schicke, was du [willt]1,
Ein Liebes oder Leides;
Ich bin vergnügt, daß beides
Aus deinen Händen quillt.

Wollest mit Freuden 
Und wollest mit Leiden
Mich nicht überschütten!
Doch in der Mitten,
Liegt holdes Bescheiden.
