Original text and translations

Gottes Sohn ist kommen
uns allen zu frommen
hier auf dieser Erden
in armen Gebärden,
dass er uns von Sünde
freie und entbinde.

Ein Gesangbuch der Bruder inn Gehemen und Merherrn (Nürnberg, 1544)

English.png English translation

Once He came in blessing,
All our ills redressing,
Came in likeness lowly,
Son of God most holy;
Bore the cross to save us,
Hope and freedom gave us.

Catherine Winkworth, Chorale Book for England, 1863
