Erfreut euch, ihr Herzen,
Entweichet, ihr Schmerzen,
Es lebet der Heiland und herrschet in euch.

Ihr könnet verjagen
Das Trauren, das Fürchten, das ängstliche Zagen,
Der Heiland erquicket sein geistliches Reich.

Alleluja! Alleluja! Alleluja!
Des solln wir alle froh sein,
Christus will unser Trost sein.
Kyrie eleis!
