Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland,
Der Jungfrauen Kind erkannt,
Des sich wundert alle Welt,
Gott solch Geburt ihm bestellt.
(“Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland,” verse 1)

English Translation

Now come, Savior of the heathens,
known as the Virgin’s child,
over whom the whole world marvels,
that God had ordained such a birth for Him.
