Chorale Text
German:
Erschienen ist der herrlich' Tag,
d'ran sich Niemand g'nug freuen mag:
Christ, unser Herr, heut' triumphiert,
all' sen' Feind' ergefangen führt. Alleluia.

English:
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
