English Translation of select verses of this chorale:

1. From heaven came the angelic host,
and appeared to the shepherds.
They said to them: A tender little child
lies there in a bare manger,

2. In Bethlehem, the city of David,
as Micah prophesied.
He is the Lord Jesus Christ,
who is the Savior of you all.

3. You should rejoice over this
gift that God has sent you.
He was born with your flesh and blood,
Your brother is the good, eternal God.

4. What can sin and death do to you?
You have the true God with you.
Let the devil and hell be angry:
God's son has become your companion.

6. In the end, you assuredly will prevail.
You have now become God's family.
Thank God for this forever,
And be patient and cheerful at all times.
