Ich wünschte mir den Tod, den Tod,

I would wish for myself death, death,

Wenn du, mein Jesu, mich nicht liebtest.

If you, my Jesus, did not love me.

Ja wenn du mich annoch betrübtest,

Indeed, if you were still causing me distress,

So hätt ich mehr als Höllennot.

I would have anguish greater than hell.
