Weihnachtslied

Language: German (Deutsch)

Auf, schicke dich
Recht feierlich
Des Heilands Fest mit Danken zu begehen;
Lieb' ist der Dank,
Der Lobgesang,
Durch den wir ihn, den Gott der Lieb', erhöhen.

Sprich dankbar froh:
Gott hat also
Die Welt in seinem Sohn geliebet!
O, wer bin ich,
Herr, dass du mich
So herrlich hoch in deinem Sohn geliebet?
