German Text

Herr Christ, der einge Gottessohn,
Vaters in Ewigkeit,
Aus seinem Herzn entsprossen,
Gleichwie geschrieben steht,
Er ist der Morgensterne,
Sein’ Glanz steckt er so ferne
Für andern Sternen klar.
(“Herr Christ, der einge Gottessohn, verse 1)

English Translation

Lord Christ, only Son of God,
of the Father in eternity,
sprung forth out of His heart,
just as it is written,
He is the morning star,
His gaze extends far and wide
and is more brilliant than other stars.
