O Gottes Lamm

Available translation(s): DUT FRE ITA
O Gottes Lamm, dein Leben
Hast du als Lösegeld
Am Kreuz uns dargegeben;
Du starbst für alle Welt!

Wem das Verdienst hienieden
Des Glaubens du verlieh'n,
Nimm dort zum Lohn in Frieden
Zu deinen Sel'gen hin.

Die fromm in dir entschlafen,
Laß frei von Qual und Pein,
Laß frei von ew'gen Strafen
Bei dir, o Jesu, sein!

Laß gnädig sie empfinden,
Herr, deines Leidens Kraft,
Befreiung von den Sünden,
Was dein Genuß verschafft!

O agnello di Dio
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the German (Deutsch) 
O agnello di Dio, la tua vita,
per il nostro riscatto,
hai offerto sulla croce;
e per tutta l'umanità sei morto!

Coloro, su questa terra,
cui concedesti il dono della fede,
ricompensali accogliendoli in pace
in mezzo ai tuoi beati.

Chi devotamente si è addormentato in Te
Libera da ogni pena o tormento,
Libera dal castigo eterno
e che ti stia accanto, Gesù!

Misericordioso, lascia che sentano,
Signore, la forza della tua sofferenza,
che libera da ogni peccato,
e regala la gioia!
