*O Jesulein süß, o Jesulein mild! Deines Vaters Willen hast du erfüllt,
bist kommen aus dem Himmelreich, uns armen Menschen worden gleich.
O Jesulein süß, o Jesulein mild! 

O Jesulein süß, o Jesulein mild! Deins Vaters Zorn hast du gestillt,
du zahlst für uns all unser Schuld und bringet uns in deins Vaters Huld. 
O Jesulein süß, o Jesulein mild!  

Dear Jesus sweet, dear Jesus mild, Your Father’s will you have fulfilled,
Have come to us from Heaven’s realm, Become equal with poor humankind.
Dear Jesus sweet, dear Jesus mild, Thy Father’s wrath thou hast stilled.
Redeem for us our trespasses And bring us thy Father’s bounty.
