Bekennen will ich seinen Namen,
Er ist der Herr, er ist der Christ,
In welchem aller Völker Samen
Gesegnet und erlöset ist.
Kein Tod raubt mir die Zuversicht:
Der Herr ist meines Lebens Licht.

 

I want to acknowledge his name,
he is the Lord, he is the Christ,
in whom the seed of all nations
is blessed and redeemed.
No death will rob me of the reassurance:
the Lord is the light of my life.
