O, let us exalt our dear Lord and proclaim,
In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!
As songs of the angels in sweetest accord,
Our thanks and our praises shall rise to the Lord.

Im finstern Stall, o Wunder gross
O Miracle of Love and Might
Macht hoch die Thür
Behold, He Cometh from Afar
Behold, One Cometh from Afar

Fling Wide the Portals of Your Heart
Lift Up, Lift Up Your Heads, Ye Gates
Lift Up Your Heads, Ye Mighty Gates

Wo ist dein Stachel nun, o Tod?
