English translation

Wir singen dir in deinem Heer
We sing to You in Your host
Aus aller Kraft Lob, Preis und Ehr,
with all our might praise, glory and honor,
Daß du, o lang gewünschter Gast,
since You, o long-awaited guest,
Dich nunmehr eingestellet hast.
from now on have become present.
(“Wir singen dir, Emmanuel,” verse 2)
