O Domine Deus 
speravi in te.
O care mi Jesu, 
nunc libera me!
In dura catena,

Desidero te;
Languendo, gemendo 
et genuflectendo
Adoro, imploro 
ut liberes me!

O Herr Gott, gesetzt ist
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Latin 
O Herr Gott, gesetzt ist
Mein Hoffen auf dich;
O Jesu, du lieber,
Nun rette du mich!
Von Ketten umfangen,
Im peinlichen Bangen
Ersehne ich dich;
Verzagend, vergehend,
Dich knieend anflehend,
Beschwör' ich dich, hör' mich,
O rette du mich!
