Representative Text

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 Amongst us now 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 May what is taught in Thy true Word,
Increase our faith in Thee, O Lord,
And so abide in us that we
May render endless praise to Thee!
