Unknown, 1632; German text

Let us all with gladsome voice
Praise the God of heaven,
Who, to bid our hearts rejoice,
His own Son hath given.

2. Down to this sad earth He comes,
Here to serve us deigning,
That with Him in yon fair homes
We may once be reigning.

3. We are rich, for He was poor;
Is not this a wonder?
Therefore praise God evermore
Here on earth and yonder.

4. Look on all who sorrow here,
Lord, in pity bending,
Grant us now a glad New Year
And a blessed ending.
