1. Die helle Sonn' leucht't jetzt herfür,
frölich vom Schlaf aufstehen wir.
Gott Lob, der uns in dieser Nacht
behütet vor des Teufels Macht!

2. Herr Christ, den Tag uns auch behüt
vor Sünd' und Schand' durch deine Güt',
laß deine lieben Engelein
unsre Hüter und Wächter sein.

3. Laß unser Werk geraten wohl,
was ein jeder ausrichten soll,
daß unsre Arbeit, Müh' und Fleiß
gereich zu dei'm Lob, Ehr' und Preis.
(Nikolaus Herman, ca. 1480 – 1561)

1. The sun is shining, clear and bright,
and joyously we greet the light.
Praise God, who brought us through this night
and kept us from the Devil's might.

2. Lord Christ, protect us through the day,
by your good grace, from sin and shame.
Your angel host be at our side
to watch and keep, protect and guide.

3. May what we do succeed this day,
as each shall choose to spend the day,
that each one's work and industry
to You may praise and honor be.
