German.png German text

Jesus, unser Trost und Leben,
der dem Tode war ergeben;
der hat herrlich und mit Macht
Sieg und Leben wiederbracht.
Er ist aus des Todes Banden
Als ein Siegesfürst erstanden.
Alleluja! Alleluja!

English.png English translation

Jesu, hope of men despairing,
to the lost, salvation bearing,
when with such triumphant might
thou o'er cam'st thy foes in fight.
Breaking bars of death's dark prison,
gloriously thou hast arisen.
Alleluia, alleluia!
