German Text

Es bringt das rechte Jubeljahr,
Was trauern wir denn immerdar?
Frisch auf! itzt ist es Singenszeit,
Das Jesulein wendt alles Leid.
(“Das neugeborne Kindelein,” verse 4)

English Translation

The true year of jubilation has been brought,
why then should we continually mourn?
Up, revived! now it is the time to sing,
since little Jesus turns aside all sorrow.
