English translation

Dies hat er alles uns getan,
All this He has done for us,
Sein groß Lieb zu zeigen an;
to indicate His great love;
Des freu sich alle Christenheit
for this all Christianity rejoices
Und dank ihm des in Ewigkeit.
and thanks Him for it in eternity.
Kyrieleis!
Kyrie eleison!
(“Gelobet seist du, Jesu Christ,” verse 7)
