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 geborn
so wärn wir allzumal verlorn.
Das Heil ist unser aller.
Eia, du süßer Jesu Christ,
das du Mensch geboren bist,
behüt uns für 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.
