German.png German translation

Kommet, ihr Hirten, Ihr Männer und Fraun!
Kommet, das liebliche Kindlein zu schaun!
Christus, der Herr, Ist heute geboren,
Den Gott zum Heiland Euch hat erkoren.
Fürchtet euch nicht!

Lasset uns sehen In Bethlehems Stall,
Was uns verheißen Der himmlische Schall!
Was wir dort finden, Lasset uns künden,
Lasset uns preisen In frommen Weisen.
Allelujah!

Wahrlich, die Engel Verkündigen heut
Bethlehems Hirtenvolk Gar große Freud:
Nun soll es werden Frieden auf Erden,
Den Menschen allen Ein Wohlgefallen.
Ehre sei Gott!

Translation by Carl Riedel

Czech.png Czech text

Nesem vám noviny poslouchejte,
Z Betlemské Krajiny, pozor dejte.
Slyste je pilne a neomylne,
Slyste je pilne a neomylne,
Rozjímejte.

Syna porodila cistá pana,
V jeslicky vlozila Krista Pána;
Jej ovinula a zavinula,
Jej ovinula a zavinula,
Plencickama.

Come, O you shepherds, people, listen to me.
Go straight to Bethlehem, the baby to see.
For Christ is born a man now among you,
God come from heaven now here to save you:
Be not afraid!

Let us go swiftly to Bethlehem's stall,
There to adore the gift revealed to us all.
What here we find we'll tell all mankind;
Give adoration, come, every nation:
Hallelujah!

Truly the angel good news has revealed
To Bethlehem's shepherds as before him they kneeled.
Now joy on earth to all men is here;
Peace among all banishes fear.
Praise be to God!
