English translation

Halleluja, Stärk und Macht
Hallelujah; strength and might
Sei des Allerhöchsten Namen!
Be to the name of the Most High.
Zion ist noch seine Stadt,
Zion is still his city
Da er seine Wohnung hat,
Where he has his dwelling,
/ Da er Lust zu wohnen hat,
/ Where he has the desire to dwell,
Da er noch bei unserm Samen
Where, among our seed, he still
An der Väter Bund gedacht.
Remembers the covenant of the fathers [of Israel]>
