Procrastination is not a problem here - bit if you want to do something, give that "lucky penny" a push; it will help me to continue offering music for your enjoyment.

Chorale Text
German (with a smattering of Latin and Greek):
In dulci jubilo singet und seid froh!
Unsers Herzens Wonne liegt in praesepio,
leuchtet als die Sonne Matris in gremio.
Alpha es et O. Alpha es et O.

English (same macaronic mixture of languages):
In dulci jubilo Your praises hereby show,
He our hearts sweet treasure lies in praesepio,
Is come to do God's pleasure Matris in gremio
Alpha es et O. Alpha es et O.
