Tröst die Bedrängten
und hilf den Kranken,

Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
Comfort the afflicted
and help the sick,
Saint Raphael,
Infirmities and injuries
overwhelm us,
help us, oh help us, Saint Raphael.

When we lie down,
watch over us,
Saint Raphael,
our pains
take to heart,
help us, oh help us, Saint Raphael.

[As we move] toward destruction,
let no one be killed,
Saint Raphael,
confessing and atoning,
we all must come,
help us, oh help us, Saint Raphael.
