Na de geboorte van haar zoon
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Heer Jezus lief, die werd gekroond met doornen,
Bescherm dit kleine kind, de hier geboor'ne.
En is 't uw wil, laat zijn geslacht gelijk
Lang heersen nog in dit, zijn koninkrijk.
En alles wat geschiedt met zijn beamen
Zij u tot roem en lof en ere. Amen.
