1. Ein Kind geborn zu Bethlehem
des freut sich Jerusalem,
Alleluja, alleluja

2. Hie leit in dem Krippelein,
Ohn Ende ist der Herrschaft sein,

3. Das Öchselein und das Eselein
Erkannten Gott den Herren sein

4. Die König aus Saba kamen dar,
Gold, Weihrauch, Myrrhen brachtn sie dar

5. Zu dieser weihnachtlichen Zeit
Sei Gott gelobt in Ewigkeit

6. Wir lobn die heilig Dreifaltigkeit
Von nun an bis in Ewigkeit

1. A child is born at Bethlehem
for whom Jerusalem rejoices
Alleluja, alleluja

2. He lies here in the manger
who reigns eternally,

3. The ox and the donkey
recognise that the child is the Lord.

4. The kings come from Sheba,
they bring gold, incense and myrrh

5. In this Christmas season
may God be praised for ever

6. We praise the Holy Trinity
from now to eternity
