Ermuntre Dich Johann Schop, 1641; harmony by Johann S. Bach, 1734 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Johann S. Bach (1685–1750)

Break forth, O beauteous heavenly light,
And usher in the morning;
O shepherds, shrink not with afright,
But hear the angel’s warning.
This Child, now weak in infancy,
Our confidence and joy shall be,
The power of Satan breaking,
Our peace eternal making.
