Choral: Kyrieleison

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

The blessed son of God only 
In a crib full poor did lie; 
With our poor flesh and our poor blood 
Was clothed that everlasting good. 

The Lord Christ Jesu, God's son dear, 
Was a guest and a stranger here; 
Us for to bring from misery, 
That we might live eternally. 

All this did he for us freely, 
For to declare his great mercy; 
All Christendom be merry therefore, 
And give him thanks for evermore.
