- Chorale Text
Erschienen ist der herrlich' Tag,
d'ran sich Niemand g'nug freuen mag:
Christ, unser Herr, heut' triumphiert,
all' sen' Feind' ergefangen führt. Alleluia.
On earth has dawned this day of days
Whereon let all men give God praise!
For Christ is risen from the tomb
And on his foes declared just doom. Alleluia!
--Tr. C. S. Terry
