Lyrics by Martin Luther

lyrics

Come, Christians, one and all, rejoice,
With exultation ringing,
And, with united heart and voice,
In adoration singing.
Proclaim the wonders God has done,
How His right arm the victory won,
Though dearly it has cost Him.

Fast bound in Satan’s chains I lay,
Death brooded darkly o’er me.
Sin was my torment night and day,
Holding my guilt before me.
Yea, deep and deeper still I fell,
Life had become a living hell,
So firmly sin possessed me.

My own good works availed me naught,
No merit they attaining.
Free will against God’s judgment fought,
Dead to all good remaining
My fears increased till sheer despair
Left naught but death to be my share;
The pangs of hell I suffered.

But God beheld my wretched state,
Before the world’s foundation,
And, mindful of His mercies great,
He planned my soul’s salvation.
A Father’s heart he turned to me,
Sought my redemption fervently,
He gave His dearest treasure.
