Lobt Gott mit Schall, ihr Heiden all,
Ihr Völker, preist den Herren,
Sein Gnad und Gunst walt über uns,
Er hilft von Herzn, er hilft von Herzen gerne,
Was er verspricht,
Das treuget nicht,
Ewig sein Wort wird bleiben,
Mit fröhlichm Mund von Herzengrund
Singn wir zu allen Zeiten
Alleluja, mit Freuden.

Praise God with joy, all ye nations,
ye people praise the Lord.
His grace and favor be with us, it helps heartily.
The faithful will forever keep his word, with cheerful mind,
with cheerful heart sing we always with joy!
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia.
