Am Karfreitag

Um unsrer Sünden willen hat sich Christus erniedriget,
und ist gehorsam geworden bis zum Tode am Kreuze;
darum hat Gott ihn erhöhet, und ihm einen Namen gegeben, der über alle Namen ist.

On Good Friday

For the sake of our sins, Christ has made himself humble
and has submitted even unto death on the cross.
Therefore God has raised him up, and given him a name which is above all names.
