Lyrics: Anon

Ein Kindelein so löbelich
ist uns geboren heute,
von einer Jungfrau säuberlich,
zu Trost uns armen Leuten.
Wär' uns das Kind'lein nicht gebor'n
so wär'n wir allzumal verlor'n.
Das Heil ist unser alle.
Ei, du süßer Jesu Christ,
das du Mensch geboren bist,
behüt uns vor der Hölle.

Such a lovely child
is born to us today,
of a virgin and in a seemly manner,
as succour for us lowly people.
Had the child not been born
we were entirely bereft.
This salvation is our everything.
Hail, sweetest Jesus Christ,
For your birth in human form
shelters us from perdition.
