Bist du bei mir

Bist du bei mir

Bist du bei mir, geh ich mit Freuden
zum Sterben und zu meiner Ruh.
Ach, wie vergnügt wär so mein Ende,
es drückten deine schönen Hände
mir die getreuen Augen zu!

Bist du bei mir

Be thou with me and I’ll go gladly
To death and on to my repose.
Ah, how my end would bring contentment,
If, pressing with thy hands so lovely,
Thou wouldst my faithful eyes then close.

in English Translations with Commentary Volume 1: BWV 1-200; Volume 2: BWV 201 (Philadelphia: XLibris, 2005)
