Lyrics

LyricsPoetic Translation
In dulci jubilo,Let shouts of joy ascend!
Nun singet und seid froh!Your voices gladly blend!
Unsers Herzens Wonne liegtFor our heart's desire
in praesepio,Did to a trough descend,
Und leuchtet als die SonneLike sunlight's shining fire,
Matris in gremio,In mother's lap our Friend,
Alpha es et O!He the start and end!
O Jesu parvuleO Jesus, small and new,
Nach dir ist mir so weh!I suffer, lacking you!
Tröst' mir mein GemüteCome and easy my aching,
O puer optimeO Baby, best who grew,
Durch alle deine GüteIn kindness comfortmaking,
O princeps gloriae.O Prince of glory true.
Trahe me post te!Draw me there to you!
O Patris caritas!O Father's loving care!
O Nati lenitas!O gentle Baby rare!
Wir wären all verlorenSurely sin had chained us,
Per nostra criminaIn all the ways we err.
So hat er uns erworbenBut out of love you gained us
Coelorum gaudiaThe joys of Heaven fair.
Eia, wären wir da!Oh, we wish we were there!
Ubi sunt gaudia?Where is gladness, where?
Nirgend mehr denn da!No place more than there!
Da die Engel singenAngels there are singing
Nova cantica,New-made songs in prayer,
Und die Schellen klingenAnd the bells are ringing
In regis curia.With King and court to share.
Eia, wären wir da!Oh, we wish we were there!
Heinrich SusoCarol Anne Perry Lagemann
