Do not take away my soul along with sinners, my life with bloodthirsty men,
Do not take my soul away along with sinners, Nor my life with men of bloodshed,
Don’t let me suffer the fate of sinners. Don’t condemn me along with murderers.
When it's time for spring cleaning, don't sweep me out with the quacks and crooks,
Let not my soul be numbered among sinners, or my life among men of blood;
Do not sweep me away with sinners, nor my life with the bloodthirsty,
Do not gather my soul with sinners, Nor my life with bloodthirsty men,
