The Complete Weihnachts-oratorium of JS Bach, Part IV:I

1. Coro  (S, A, T, B)

Fallt mit Danken, fallt mit Loben
Vor des Höchsten Gnadenthron!
Gottes Sohn
Will der Erden
Heiland und Erlöser werden,
Gottes Sohn
Dämpft der Feinde Wut und Toben.


Fall and thank him, fall and praise him
At the Highest's throne of grace!
God's own Son
Will of earth the
Savior and Redeemer be now,
God's own Son
Stems our foe's great wrath and fury.



The complete Christmas Oratorio is featured on All for Hymn
beginning at 6:00 PM ET on December 24, 2011
