Original German lyrics:

Jesus bleibet meine Freude,
meines Herzens Trost und Saft,
Jesus wehret allem Leide,
er ist meines Lebens Kraft,

meiner Augen Lust und Sonne,
meiner Seele Schatz und Wonne,
darum lass' ich Jesum nicht
aus dem Herzen und Gesicht.

Most common English lyrics (not a direct translation):

Jesu, joy of man's desiring, Holy wisdom, love most bright;
Drawn by Thee, our souls aspiring, Soar to uncreated light.
Word of God, our flesh that fashioned, With the fire of life impassioned,
Striving still to truth unknown, Soaring, dying round Thy throne.

Through the way where hope is guiding, Hark, what peaceful music rings;
Where the flock, in Thee confiding, Drink of joy from deathless springs.
Theirs is beauty’s fairest pleasure; Theirs is wisdom’s holiest treasure.
Thou dost ever lead Thine own In the love of joys unknown.
