English translation

Halleluja, Stärk und Macht
Hallelujah, power and might
Sei des Allerhöchsten Namen!
be the names 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 noch bei unserm Samen
where He still with our offspring
An der Väter Bund gedacht.
remembers the covenant of our fathers.
