English translation

Ihr Menschen, rühmet Gottes Liebe
You humankind, vaunt God’s love
Und preiset seine Gütigkeit!
And praise his goodness.
Lobt ihn aus reinem Herzenstriebe,
Acclaim him out of pure inclination of the heart,
Dass er uns zu bestimmter Zeit
Because at the appointed time
Das Horn des Heils, den Weg zum Leben
He gave us the horn of salvation, the way to [eternal] life,
An Jesu, seinem Sohn, gegeben.
In Jesus, his son.
