- Chorale Text
Vom Himmel hoch, da komm ich her,
Ich bring euch gute neue Mär;
Der guten Mär bring ich so viel,
Davon ich singn und sagen will.
From heav'n on high I come to you, I bring to you glad tidings new;
I bring to you good tidings new;
Of that good news I bring so much,
Thereof both sing and tell I will.
