Bist du bei mir
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE IRI ITA SPA
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!

Note: the misattribution to Bach is probably due to his including the song in his Anna Magdalena Songbook.

Si tu es avec moi
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Si tu es avec moi, j'irai avec joie
Vers la mort et mon repos.
Ah, comme ma fin serait agréable,
Si tes chères mains appuyaient
Sur mes yeux fidèles.
