All my heart this night rejoices

Composer

Johann Georg Ebeling

SATB

Das ander Dutzet Geistlicher Andacht-Lieder Herrn Paul Gerhardt's, Frankfurt, 1666.

Paul Gerhardt 1653 Translated by Catherine Winkworth 1858.

Text

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, 
     everywhere,
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.
