Jesus Christus, Gottes Sohn,
An unser Statt ist kommen
Und hat die Sünde weggetan,
Damit dem Tod genommen
All sein Recht und sein Gewalt,
Da bleibet nichts denn Tods Gestalt,
Den Stach'l hat er verloren.
Halleluja!

Jesus Christ, the Son of God
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
Jesus Christ, the Son of God,
Has to our state descended,
He with our sin hath done away,
And thus Death's might hath ended.
All his right and power are gone,
The form remains of death alone,
The sting is lost forever.
Halleluja!
