Incidentally, the opening phrase "Bist Du bei mir" is not interrogative but conditional, i.e. not "Are you with me?" but "Were you with me, ..." or "If you were with me, ..."
If you were with me, I would go joyfully,
To my death and to my rest,
To my death and to my rest.
Oh, how blissful my end would be,
If your beautiful hands were there to close my loving eyes for me.
