Soloists:

Text:

Was Gott den Vätern alter Zeiten
Geredet und verheißen hat,
Erfüllt er auch im Werk und in der Tat.
Was Gott dem Abraham,
Als er zu ihm in seine Hütten kam,
Versprochen und geschworen,
Ist, da die Zeit erfüllet war, geschehen.
Sein Same musste sich so sehr
Wie Sand am Meer
Und Stern am Firmament ausbreiten,
Der Heiland ward geboren,
Das ewge Wort ließ sich im Fleische sehen,
Das menschliche Geschlecht von Tod und allem Bösen
Und von des Satans Sklaverei
Aus lauter Liebe zu erlösen;
Drum bleibt's darbei,
Dass Gottes Wort voll Gnad und Wahrheit sei.
