English translation

Er hat sein Volk getröst’,
He has comforted His people,
Er hat sein Israel erlöst,
He has rescued His Israel,
Die Hülf aus Zion hergesendet
sending help out of Zion
Und unser Leid geendet.
and ending our sorrow.
Seht, Hirten, dies hat er getan;
Look, shepherds, He has done this;
Geht, dieses trefft ihr an!
go, this is what awaits you!
