"We Christians May Rejoice Today"
Christmas anthem for SATB choir with piano accompaniment. Text by Caspar Füger, 1592, translate by Catherine Winkworth, setting by J. Bruce Ashton.
We Christians may rejoice today
When Christ was born to comfort and to save us.
Who thus believes no longer grieves,
For none are lost who grasp the hope He gave us.
Oh wondrous joy that God most high
Should take our flesh and thus our race should honor!
A virgin mild hath borne this Child;
Such grace and glory God hat put upon her.
Sin brought us grief, but Christ relief,
When down to earth He came for our salvation
Since God with us is dwelling thus,
Who dares to speak the Christian’s condemnation?
Yea, let us praise our God and raise
Loud hallelujahs to the skies above us.
The bliss bestowed today by God
To ceaseless thankfulness, and joy should move us.
