English translation

Öffnet euch, ihr beiden Ohren,
Open yourselves, both my ears,
Jesus hat euch zugeschworen,
Jesus has sworn to you
Daß er Teufel, Tod erlegt.
that He has laid low the devil and death.
Gnade, Gnüge, volles Leben
Grace, pleasure, a full life
Will er allen Christen geben,
He will give to all Christians
Wer ihm folgt, sein Kreuz nachträgt.
who follow Him, and bear His Cross after.
