Jesus Christus unser Heiland, der den...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ueberwunden hat der Herr den Tod!
Des Menschen Sohn und Gott
Ist auferstanden!
Ein Sieger auferstanden!

Rein, entweiht von keiner Sünde nicht,
Trug er des Herrn Gericht,
Daß wir, von Sünden
Erlöst, Gott wieder finden!

Heil, Verwerfung, Tod und Leben, ist,
Dein Werk, Gott, Jesu Christ!
Du willst das Leben
Den Ueberwindern geben!

Paaslied "Jezus Christus onze Heiland"

Language: Dutch (Nederlands) after the German (Deutsch)

Overwonnen heeft de Heer de dood!
De Mensenzoon en God
Is nu verrezen!
Als winnaar nu verrezen!
Rein, en van geen zonde ooit beticht,
Droeg hij het Godsgericht,
Dat wij, van zonden
Verlost, God weder vonden!
Heil, verwerping, dood en leven is
Uw werk, God, Jesu Christ!
Gij wilt het leven
De overwinnaars geven!
