Gloria sei, wieder! Glory be, again!

Gloria sei dir gesungen
Glory to Thee be sung

Mit Menschen- und mit Engelzungen,
With singing folk and singing angels,

Mit Harfen und mit Zimbeln schön.
With harp and beautiful cymbals.

Von zwölf Perlen sind die Tore
Of twelve pearls are the doors

An deiner Stadt, wir stehn im Chore
In Thy city, we stand with the choir

Der Engel hoch um deinen Thron.
of angels high on the throne.

Kein Aug hat je gespürt,
No eye has yet seen,

Kein Ohr hat mehr gehört
No ear has ever heard

Solche Freude!
Such joy!

Des jauchzen wir und singen dir
So we rejoice and sing to Thee

Das Halleluja für und für!
That Alleluja forever and ever!
