Arie (Duett) 
Die Armut, so Gott auf sich nimmt,
Hat uns ein ewig Heil bestimmt,
Den Überfluß an Himmelsschätzen.
Sein menschlich Wesen machet euch
Den Engelsherrlichkeiten gleich,
Euch zu der Engel Chor zu setzen.

Aria (Duet) 
The poverty that God takes upon Himself,
has destined an eternal salvation for us,
an abundance of heavenly treasures.
His mortal being makes you
like the glory of the angels,
placing you among the angel choirs.

Choral
Das hat er alles uns getan,
Sein groß Lieb zu zeigen an;
Des freu sich alle Christenheit
Und dank ihm des in Ewigkeit.
Kyrie eleis!

Chorale
He has done all this for us,
to show His great love,
All Christianity rejoices over this
and thanks Him in eternity.
Kyrie eleison!
