From heaven high, O angels, come,
Eya, eya, susani, susani, susani.
Come music, song, come pipe and drum,
Alleluia, alleluia.
Of Jesus sing and Maria.

Let every instrument join in,
Eya, eya, susani, susani, susani.
Bring lute and harp and violin,
Alleluia, alleluia.
Of Jesus sing and Maria.

Send forth your voices louder yet,
Eya, eya, susani, susani, susani.
With organ and with flageolet,
Alleluia, alleluia.
Of Jesus sing and Maria.

How heavenly must the music be,
Eya, eya, susani, susani, susani.
Because a heavenly Child is He,
Alleluia, alleluia.
Of Jesus sing and Maria.

To men on earth all peace may be,
Eya, eya, susani, susani, susani.
And praise to God eternally,
Alleluia, alleluia.
Of Jesus sing and Maria.


[German translation:]

Vom Himmel hoch, o Englein kommt.
Eia, eia, Susani, susani, susani.
Kommt, singt und klingt, kommt, pfeift und trombt.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah.
Von Jesus singt und Maria.

Kommt ohne Instrumente nit.
Eia, eia, Susani, susani, susani.
Bringt Lauten, Harfen, Geigen mit.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah.
Von Jesus singt und Maria.

Lasst Horen euer Stimmen viel.
Eia, eia, Susani, susani, susani.
Mit Orgel und mit Saitenspiel.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah.
Von Jesus singt und Maria.

Singt Fried den Menschen weit und breit,
Eia, eia, Susani, susani, susani.
Gott Preis und Ehr in Ewigkeit.
Halelujah, Hallelujah.
Von Jesus singt und Maria
