|Tune:||WARUM SOLLT' ICH MICH DENN GRAMEN|
|Composer:||Johann G. Ebeling|
1 All my heart this night rejoices
as I hear
far and near
sweetest angel voices.
"Christ is born," their choirs are singing
till the air
now with joy is ringing.
2 Forth today the Conqu'ror goeth,
who the foe,
sin and woe,
death and hell, o'erthroweth.
God is man, man to deliver;
His dear Son
now is one
with our blood forever.
3 Shall we still dread God's displeasure,
who, to save,
His most cherished Treasure?
To redeem us, He hath given
His own Son
from the throne
of His might in heaven.
4 He becomes the Lamb that taketh
and for aye
full atonement maketh.
For our life His own He tenders;
and our race,
by His grace,
fit for glory renders.
5 Hark! a voice from yonder manger,
soft and sweet,
"Flee from woe and danger;
brethren, from all ills that grieve you
you are freed;
all you need
I will surely give you."
6 Come, then, banish all your sadness,
one and all,
great and small;
come with songs of gladness.
Love Him who with love is glowing;
hail the star,
near and far
light and joy bestowing.
7 Dearest Lord, Thee will I cherish.
Though my breath
fail in death,
yet I shall not perish,
but with Thee abide forever
there on high,
in that joy
which can vanish never.
