German.png German text

Eile, mich, Gott, zu erretten, Herr, mir zu helfen!
Es müssen sich schämen und zu Schanden werden,
die nach meiner Seele stehen.
Sie müssen zurücke kehren und gehöhnet werden,
die mir Übels wünschen,
daß sie müssen wiederum zu Schanden werden,
die da über mich schreien: da, da!
Freuen und fröhlich müssen sein in dir,
die nach dir fragen und dein Heil lieben,
immer sagen: Hoch gelobt sei Gott!
Ich aber bin elend und arm.
Gott, eile zu mir,
denn du bist mein Helfer und Erretter,
mein Gott, verzeuch nicht!

English.png English translation

Make haste, O God to deliver me. Make haste to help me!
Let those who seek after my soul
be shamed and confounded.
Let those who delight in my pain
be turned back and brought dishonor.
Let them, in their shame, cry out: Aha, aha.
Let all those who seek You
rejoice and be happy in You,
and let those who love Your salvation
always say, "Let God be magnified!"
But I am poor and needy.
Make haste unto me, O God,
You are my help and my deliverer.
My God, do not tarry!
