Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE ITA
Dich, Mutter Gottes, ruf' wir an,
bitt' für uns, Maria!
Tu' uns in Ängsten nicht verlan,
Jesum, dein Sohn, der Not ermahn,
die er um menschlich Geschlecht wollte han,
bitt' für uns, Maria!

Dass wir vollkommen werden gar,
bitt für uns, Maria!
Leib, Ehr' und Gut auf Erd' bewahr',
dass wir in Zeit viel guter Jahr'
dort leben mit der Engel Schar,
bitt' für uns, Maria!

Du bist der Brunn, der nicht verseicht,
bitt' für uns, Maria!
Dass uns der heilig Geist erleucht
zu wahrer Reu und ganzer Beicht!
Jesus, dein Sohn, dir nicht verzeicht,
bitt' für uns, Maria!

Implore to Mary
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
To you, mother of God, we call,
Pray for us, Mary!
Don't leave us alone in our sorrows,
do remind Jesus, your son, of the agony he went through
On behalf of mankind.
Pray for us, Mary!

In our strivings for perfection,
Pray for us, Mary!
Save our body, honour and earthly goods
So that we, after many good years
Can live together with the angels,
Pray for us, Mary!

You are the well that never runs dry,
Pray for us, Mary!
That the Holy Spirit may enlighten us
to true repentance and complete confession!
Jesus, your son would want you to
Pray for us, Mary!
