1 AGAIN is come the new church-year;
Rejoice, all Christians, far and near!
Thy King, O Zion, comes to Thee,
Therefore rejoice eternally!
2 Now in our midst anew are heard
The lessons of God's gracious Word,
Which shows the way to life in heaven.
For this all praise to God be given!
3 What we are taught by Thy true Word,
Be which our faith is strengthened, Lord,
Let that abide in us, that we
May render endless praise to Thee.
