What is a translation?

A translation is the process of translating the original lyric language into a different language.

Vers 1

Hier bin ich. All dass, was mich antreibt,

wo ich mich verrannt hab, das leg ich nun vor dich hin.

Hier bei dir zählt allein deine Liebe,

die ich nicht verdiene,

doch du nennst mich dein Kind.



Du brauchst mich nicht, doch ich merke: du willst mich.

Du liebst mich so sehr und das befreit mich.

Mein Leben leg ich aus der Hand,

lass Erwartungen los.

O, Du brauchst mich nicht, doch ich merke: du willst mich.

Du liebst mich so sehr und das befreit mich,

geb dir die Kontrolle. Sei du, Herr, mein Gott.

(Sei du, Herr, mein Gott.)


Vers 2

Was ich wollt, ist so oft zerbrochen,

und was ich erhoffte, zerrinnt mir wie Sand.

Doch du willst mich befrein und erneuern,

mich beschützen und steuern.

Herr, nimm meine Hand.



Du willst mich.

Ich merke: Du willst mich!

Der Herr des Himmels will mich,

deshalb hat die Welt kein Recht auf mich.

What is controlled label copy?

We provide our controlled label copy for you to use in your project. If we do not control 100% of the song (composition or musical work) rights, it is your responsibility to locate the other owners and get their controlled label copy. The end result- you’ve cleared 100% of the song.
