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 Gott, mein Gebieter,
Stets hofft’ ich auf Dich!
O Jesu, Geliebter,
Nun rette Du mich!

In schlimmer Bedrängniß
Ersehnet’ ich Dich;
In Klagen, Dir klagend,
Im Staube verzagend,
Erhör', ich beschwöre,
Und rette Du mich!
