O du fröhliche

Language: German (Deutsch)

O du fröhliche,
o du selige,
gnadenbringende Weihnachtszeit!
Welt ging verloren,
Christ ist geboren.
Freue, freue dich, Christenheit! 

O du fröhliche,
o du selige,
gnadenbringende Osternzeit!
Welt liegt in Banden;
Christ ist erstanden.
Freue, freue dich, Christenheit! 

O du fröhliche,
o du selige,
gnadenbringende Pfingstenzeit!
Christ, unser Meister,
Heiligt die Geister.
Freue, freue dich, Christenheit!
