Weyse: Julen har bragt velsignet bud
DR KoncertKoret; Phillip Faber, Director

This is just running the text through Google translate so I’m sure it’s not quite accurate!

Christmas has brought blessed commandments.
Now old and young are rejoicing:
What the angels sang in the world,
now all little kids have to sing.
The branch from the tree of life stands beautiful
with lights like birds on twigs.
The child who delights in piety and beauty,
never lose that joy.

Joy is the guest of the earth today
with the king of heaven the little one.
You poor sparrow! Fly down from the roof
with the pigeon for Christmas party!
Dance, little kid, on mother’s lap!
A nice day is round:
Today, our dear Savior was born
and the Paradise Road found.

The Savior Himself was a child like us,
today he lay in his cradle.
The garden in which the angels of God fly,
Jesus will open for us.
The King of Heaven lives among us,
He brings us the Christmas joy,
he embraces every child’s soul on earth
and promise us angel wings.
