Weihnacht ist heut

Language: German (Deutsch)

Weihnacht ist heut,
O welche Freud!
Da lachen wir alle und jubeln vor Lust;
Jagt fort die Last
Aus Hütt' und Palast
Und gönnet der Freude Raum in der Brust.
Komm du herein,
Lieb Christkindlein,
Es brennen die Kerzen, die Türen sind weit;
In deiner Hut
Mach' fromm uns und gut,
Und leg' in die Herzen die Dankbarkeit.
Eia, eia, eia, eia.
