Ehre sei Gott in der Höhe (attributed)

Bach, Johann Michael (1648–1694)
Original Text English Translation
 
Ehre sei Gott in der Höhe
und Friede auf Erden
und den Menschen ein Wohlgefallen!
Lob Ehr sei Gott
Im höchsten Thron
Der uns schenkt seinen eingen Sohn.
Des freuet sich der Engel Schar
Und Singe nuns solch neues Jahr.
“Honor be to God on high,
and on earth peace,
and for humanity goodwill!” (Luke 2:14)
Honor and praise be to God
On highest throne,
Who gifts us his only son:
For this the host of angels are glad
And greet us with such a new-year song.
