Es ist vollbracht!
It is finished!
O Trost vor die gekränkten Seelen!
O comfort for the ailing soul!
Die Trauernacht
The night of sorrow
Läßt nun die letzte Stunde zählen.
now measures out its last hour.
Der Held aus Juda siegt mit Macht
The hero out of Judah conquers with might
Und schließt den Kampf.
and concludes the battle.
Es ist vollbracht!
It is finished!
