by Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475 - 1564)
Translation by Heinrich Nelson

L'alma inquieta e confusa in sé non...
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
L'alma inquieta e confusa in sé non truova
Altra cagion c'alcun grave peccato
Mal conosciuto, onde non è celato
All'immensa pietà c'a' miser giova.

I' parlo a te, Signor, c'ogni mie pruova
Fuor del tuo sangue non fa l'uom beato:
Miserere di me, da ch'io son nato
A la tuo legge; e non fie cosa nuova.

In schwerer Schuld nur
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
In schwerer Schuld nur, die sie dumpf bedrückt,
Der Unruh' und der Wirrsal Ursach ahnt 
Die Seele, doch sie bleibt nicht unbekannt 
Dem Mitleid, das ohne End' im Schmerz erquickt.

Zu dir, o Herr, sprech' ich, denn kein Mühn beglückt 
Den, der die Hilfe durch dein Blut nicht fand: 
Erbarm' dich mein, ich bin in deiner Hand 
Seit der Geburt, und werd' dir nie entrückt.
