1  Das alte Jahr vergangen ist,
wir danken dir, Herr Jesu Christ,
dass du uns in so grosser Gefahr
bewahret hast in diesem Jahr.

2  Und bitten dich, ewigen Sohn,
des Vaters in dem höchsten Thron
du wollst dein arme Christenheit
bewahren ferner allezeit.
 

English.png English translation

1  The old year now hath passed away;
We thank Thee, O our God, today
That Thou hast kept us through the year
When danger and distress were near.

2  We pray Thee, O eternal Son,
Who with the Father reign’st as One,
To guard and rule Thy Christendom
Through all the ages yet to come.
 

Translation by Catherine Winkworth
