All my heart this night rejoices


Johann Georg Ebeling


Johann Sebastian Bach


From the collection of C.P.E. Bach.

Paul Gerhardt 1653 Translated by Catherine Winkworth 1858.


All my heart this night rejoices,
     as I hear, 
     far and near,
sweetest angel voices;
Christ is born, their choirs are singing,
     Till the air, 
now with joy is ringing.

Hark! a voice from yonder manger,
     soft and sweet, 
     doth entreat,
Flee from woe and danger;
brethren, come; from all that grieves you
     you are freed; 
     all you need
I will surely give you.

Come, then, let us hasten yonder;
     here let all, 
     great and small,
kneel in awe and wonder,
love him Who with love is yearning;
     hail the star 
     that from far
bright with hope is burning.

Thee, dear Lord, with heed I'll cherish;
     live to thee 
     and with thee,
dying, shall not perish;
but shall dwell with thee for ever,
     far on high,
     in the joy
that can alter never.
