Original text and translations

Original text and translations may be found at Christ lag in Todesbanden.

The text follows the 1620 print. It differs in two small details from the standard text. It has für unser Sünd instead of für unsre Sünd, and it has daß wir sollen fröhlich sein instead of des wir sollen fröhlich sein. Since they are consistent in all 8 voices, I retained the original wording.
