German Advent Calendar Day 12

Herbei, O ihr Gläubigen

This is another German Christmas Carol that you should know, as it’s also an English Christmas Carol. The English carol  ‘Oh come, all ye faithful’ was written in 1841 by Frederick Oakley, whereas the German version was written by Friedrich Heinrich Ranke in 1823.

Herbei, o ihr Gläubigen,Fröhlich triumphierend,
O kommet, o kommet nach Bethlehem!
Sehet das Kindlein,
Uns zum Heil geboren!
O lasset uns anbeten, o lasset uns anbeten,
O lasset uns anbeten den König!

Du König der Ehren,
Herrscher der Heerscharen,
Verschmähst nicht zu ruhn in Marien Schoß,
Gott, wahrer Gott von Ewigkeit geboren.

O lasset …

Kommt, singet dem Herren,
Singt ihr Engelchöre!
Frohlocket, frohlocket ihr Seligen:
“Ehre sei Gott im Himmel und auf Erden!”

O lasset …
