Let us all in God rejoice

Full Text

1 Let us all in God rejoice,
Who is pleased to save us;
Praise we Him with heart and voice,
For His Son He gave us.

2 He descends to sorrows here
As a servant lowly,
That in heav'n we may appear
Princes high and holy.

3 Wealth to give He poor became--
Is not this a wonder?
Therefore let us praise His name
While His grace we ponder.

4 Lord, this year Thy favor show,
Banish sin and sadness:
All who fain would have it so
Say Amen with gladness.

In 1554 he became diaconus at Schneeberg, and still held this position in 1562. The date of his death is not known; but his successor in office died in 1571 (Blätter fur Hymnologie, 1884, pp. 7-12, 25-27, 190). Whether he wrote any hymns is doubtful. The only one ascribed to him which has passed into English is:— Lasst uns alle fröhlich sein. Christmas.
