Als das Christkind war zur Welt gebracht,
Das uns von der Hölle gerettet,
Da lag's auf der Krippe bei finstrer Nacht,
Auf Stroh und Heu gebettet;
Doch über der Hütte glänzte der Stern,
Und der Ochse küßte den Fuß des Herrn.
Halleluja, Kind Jesus!

Ermanne dich, Seele, die krank und matt,
Vergiß die nagenden Schmerzen.
Ein Kind ward geboren in Davids Stadt
Zum Trost für alle Herzen.
O laßt uns wallen zum Kindlein hin,
Und Kinder werden in Geist und Sinn.
Halleluja, Kind Jesus!

Quan el Nen Jesús va ser portat al món
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Quan el Nen Jesús va ser portat al món
per salvar-nos de l’infern
jeia al pessebre en la negra nit,
en un llit de palla i de fenc,
però damunt l’establia lluïa un estel,
i el bou besava els peus del Senyor,
al•leluia, Nen Jesús!

Pren coratge, ànima, tan malalta i feble,
oblida els martiritzants dolors.
A la ciutat de David ha nascut un infant
per al conhort de tots els cors.
Oh, anem a veure aquest petit infant,
per, en esperit, esdevenir nosaltres també infants.
Al•leluia, Nen Jesús!
