German Text

Jesus Christus, Gottes Sohn,
An unser Statt ist kommen
Und hat die Sünde weggetan,
Damit dem Tod genommen
All sein Recht und sein Gewalt,
Da bleibet nichts denn Tods Gestalt,
Den Stach’l hat er verloren.
Halleluja!

English Translation

Jesus Christ, God’s son,
has come in our place,
and has done away with sin,
thereby taking from death
all his rights and power,
nothing remains but death’s form;
he has lost his sting.
Hallelujah!
