Ich steh an deiner Krippen hier

Ich steh an deiner Krippen hier,
o Jesulein, mein Leben;
ich komme, bring und schenke dir,
was du mir hast gegeben.
Nimm hin, es ist mein Geist und Sinn,
Herz, Seel und Mut, nimm alles hin
und laß dir's wohlgefallen!

Beside Thy Cradle Here I Stand

Beside Thy cradle here I stand,
O Thou that ever livest,
And bring Thee with a willing hand
The very gifts Thou givest.
Accept me, 'tis my mind and heart,
My soul, my strength, my ev'ry part,
That Thou from me requirest.
