Available translation(s): ENG
  О, Lilie rein, 
Maria du
Voll Gnadenschein
Und Friedensruh'!

  O Rose roth,
Die Duft umfließt,
In Noth und Tod
Sei mir gegrüßt!

  In Noth und Tod 
Sei du mein Stern!
Wie schwank mein Boot,
Dir folg' ich gern.

  Trotz Flutgebraus
Und Sturmesweh'n,
In's Vaterhaus 
Werd' ein ich geh'n!

  O Lilie rein, 
Maria du, 
O Mutter mein,
Gib mir die Ruh'!

Oh lily pure
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
  Oh lily pure,
Mary, Thou
Full of the radiance of mercy
And peaceful rest!

  Oh red rose,
Enveloped by scent,
In misery and death
Be hailed!

In misery and death
Be Thou my star!
How unstable is my barque,
I follow Thee gladly.

  Despite raging waters
And the raging of the storm,
I shall enter
The Father’s house.

  Oh lily pure,
Mary, Thou
Oh Mother of mine,
Give me rest!
