Komm, süßer Tod
Komm, süßer Tod,
Komm, selige Ruh,
Komm, führ mich in Friede,
Weil ich der Welt bin müde!
Ach komm, ich wart' auf dich,
Komm bald und führe mich,
Drück' mir die Augen zu,
Komm, selige Ruh.

This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary
for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees,
the Archive was supported financially last year by fewer than 0.02%

Vieni, morte dolce
Vieni, morte dolce,
vieni, riposo beato,
vieni, conducimi in pace,
del mondo mi sono stancato!
Ah vieni, sono in attesa,
vieni, portami ora con te,
sugli occhi miei la tua mano posa,
riposo beato, discendi su me.
