Lyrics for Mov.I
GERMAN (original)
Ach Gott, vom Himmel sieh darein
Und lass dich's doch erbarmen!
Wie wenig sind der Heilgen dein,
Verlassen sind wir Armen;
Dein Wort man nicht lässt haben wahr,
Der Glaub ist auch verloschen gar
Bei allen Menschenkindern.

ENGLISH (translation)
Ah God, look down from heaven
and still have mercy on us!
How few of the saints belong to you,
We poor wretches are forsaken,
people simply will not believe your word,
faith is also now fading away
among all mankind.
