Ehre sei dir, Gott, gesungen,
Dir sei Lob und Dank bereit’.

Dich erhebet alle Welt,
Weil dir unser Wohl gefällt,
Weil anheut
Unser aller Wunsch gelungen,
Weil uns dein Segen so herrlich erfreut.

English Translation

Let honor be sung to You, o God,
praise and thanks be prepared for You.

All the world exalts You,
since our well-being was Your pleasure,
since today
all our wishes have come to pass,
since Your blessing so gloriously delights us.
