English translation

Wir danken und preisen dein brünstiges Lieben
We thank and praise your fervent love
Und bringen ein Opfer der Lippen vor dich.
and bring an offering from our lips before You.
Der Sieger erwecket die freudigen Lieder,
The Victor awakens the happy songs,
Der Heiland erscheinet und tröstet uns wieder
the Savior appears and comforts us again
Und stärket die streitende Kirche durch sich.
and through Himself strengthens the struggling Church.
