The Hymns and Carols of Christmas

Tochter Zion, Freue Dich!

Words: Heinrich Ranke (1798-1876)
Translation: Zion's Daughter - Version 1, H. Brueckner

Music: "Maccabaeus," G. F. Handel, 1746

1. Tochter Zion, freue dich!
Jauchze, laut, Jerusalem!
Sieh, dein König kommt zu dir!
Ja er kommt, der Friedenfürst.
Tochter Zion, freue dich!
Jauchze, laut, Jerusalem!

2. Hosianna, Davids Sohn,
Sei gesegnet deinem Volk!
Gründe nun dein ewig' Reich,
Hosianna in der Höh'!
Hosianna, Davids Sohn,
Sei gesegnet deinem Volk!

3. Hosianna, Davids Sohn,
Sei gegrüßet, König mild!
Ewig steht dein Friedensthron,
Du, des ew'gen Vaters Kind.
Hosianna, Davids Sohn,
Sei gegrüßet, König mild!

Sheet Music to "Zion's Daughter" from O. Hardwig, The Wartburg Hymnal (Chicago: Wartburg Publishing House, 1918), #85.

Editor's Note:

I have also seen attribution of the lyrics to Johannes Escheburg (1743-1820).
