   Ein kindelein so löbelich,
  ist uns geboren heute/
  Von einer Jungfraw seuberlich,
  zu trost uns armen leuten/
  Wer uns das kindelein nicht geborn/
  so wern wir all zumal verlorn/
  das heil ist unser aller/
  Ey du süsser Jesu Christ/
  das du mensch geboren bist/
  behüt uns vor der hellen.

 A child so praiseworthy,
   is born today /
   From a virgin neat,
   to comfort us poor people /
   Had this child not been born
   we would all have been lost /
   thus salvation is for all of us
   Glory to you sweet Jesus Christ /
   that you were born human /
   protect us from evil.
