Available translation(s): FRE
Indes bedenke deine Seele
Und stelle sie dem Heiland dar;
Gib deinen Leib und deine Glieder

Er sorgt und wacht,
Und so wird seiner Liebe Macht
Im Tod und Leben offenbar.

Récitatif. Pourtant pense à ton âme
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Pourtant pense à ton âme
Et ouvre-la au Sauveur
Donne ton corps et tes membres
À Dieu, qui te les a donnés.
Il prend soin et il veille,
Et ainsi le pouvoir de son amour
Sera manifeste dans la mort et la vie.
