(Melody by Johann G. Ebeling, 1666, Lyrics by Paul Gerhardt, 1656)
1. All my heart again rejoices
As I hear far and near sweetest angel voices.
“Christ is born!” their choirs are singing
Till the air everywhere now with joy is ringing.
2. Hark! A voice from yonder manger,
Soft and sweet doth entreat, “Flee from woe and danger;
Brethren come, From all that grieves you
You are freed, all you need, I will surely give you.”
3. Come then, let us hasten yonder,
Here let all great and small kneel in awe and wonder.
Love Him who with love is yearning,
Hail the star that from far bright with hope is burning.
