1  Wir wollen alle fröhlich sein
in dieser österlichen Zeit;
denn unser Heil an Gotte leit.
Halleluja, Halleluja,
gelobt sei Christus, Marien Sohn.

2  Es ist erstanden Jesus Christ,
der an dem Kreuz gestorben ist,
dem sei Lob, Ehr zu aller Frist.
Halleluja…

3  Er hat zerstört der Hölle Macht,
die hart gebunden frei gemacht,
Licht, Heil und Leben wiederbracht
Halleluja…

4  Es freu sich alle Christenheit
und lobe die Dreifaltigkeit
von nun an bis in Ewigkeit.
Halleluja…

1  Rejoice we all this Easter-tide!
For He is living who had died,
And all our wrongs are rectified.
Alleluia, Alleluia,
To Christ, Son of Mary, all glory be!

2  For Jesus, who endured our pain
Upon the cross, is ris’n again
All praise and glory His remain!
Alleluia…

3  Hell's power he has destroyed amain,
And freed the captives from their pain,
Light, life, salvation brought again.
Alleluia…

4  Let all the Church then joyful be
And praise the Holy Trinity
This Easter and eternally.
Alleluia…
