Christ ist erstanden
Von der Marter alle,
Des solln wir alle froh sein,
Christ will unser Trost sein.
Kyrie eleis.

Christ is risen
from all his torments,
we should all be joyful at this,
Christ wants to be our consolation.
Lord have mercy.

Wär er nicht erstanden,
So wär die Welt vergangen;
Seit daß er erstanden ist,
So lobn wir den Vater Jesu Christ.
Kyrie eleis.

If he were not risen,
then the world would be lost.
Since he is risen,
we praise the father of Jesus Christ.
Lord have mercy.

Halleluja,
Halleluja, Halleluja!
Des solln wir alle froh sein,
Christ will unser Trost sein.
Kyrie eleis.

Alleluia,

Christ wants to be a consolation .
Lord have mercy
