English translation

Nun seid ihr wohl gerochen
Now you are well avenged
An eurer Feinde Schar,
upon the horde of your enemies,
Denn Christus hat zerbrochen,
since Christ has pulverized
Was euch zuwider war.
what was contrary to you.
Tod, Teufel, Sünd und Hölle
Death, devil, sin and hell
Sind ganz und gar geschwächt;
are weakened once and for all;
Bei Gott hat seine Stelle
the place of the human race
Das menschliche Geschlecht.
is next to God.
(“Ihr Christen auserkoren,” verse 4)
