O du fröhliche
This very popular German Christmas carol has Italian origins. In 1788 the German philosopher, theologian, and poet Johann Gottfried von Herder (1744-1803) brought the melody to Germany after a trip to Italy. Originally a Sicilian fisherman’s song, the melody was used for the Latin hymn “O Sanctissima.” Around 1816 Johannes Daniel Falk (1768-1826) wrote the German lyrics for what soon became one of the most popular German Weihnachtslieder. The English version is known as “O How Joyfully.”


O du fröhliche
O You Merry (Christmastide)

MELODIE: Sizilianisches Fischerlied – Johann Gottfried von Herder (1788)
TEXT: Johannes Daniel Falk (1816)

DEUTSCH
Johannes Daniel Falk, 1816O du fröhliche, o du selige,
Gnadenbringende Weihnachtszeit!
Welt ging verloren,
Christ ist geboren,
Freue, freue dich, o Christenheit! O du fröhliche, o du selige,
Gnadenbringende Weihnachtszeit!
Christ ist erschienen,
Uns zu versöhnen,
Freue, freue dich, o Christenheit!O du fröhliche, o du selige,
Gnadenbringende Weihnachtszeit!
Himmlische Heere
Jauchzen dir Ehre,
Freue, freue dich, o Christenheit!
ENGLISH (lit. prose)
See poetic version belowO you merry, o you blessed,
Merciful Christmastide!
The world was lost,
Christ was born,
Rejoice, rejoice o Christendom! O you merry, o you blessed,
Merciful Christmastide!
Christ appeared,
To reconcile us,
Rejoice, rejoice o Christendom!O you merry, o you blessed,
Merciful Christmastide!
Heavenly hosts,
Exult your honor,
Rejoice, rejoice o Christendom!

LISTEN > Melody for “O du fröhliche” (midi version)


English poetic version, author unknown
O How Joyfully (O du fröhliche)

O how joyfully, o how blessedly,
Comes the glory of Christmastime!
To a world so lost in sin,
Christ the Savior, enters in:
Praise Him, praise Him Christians, evermore!

O how joyfully, o how blessedly,
Comes the glory of Christmastime!
Jesus, born in lowly stall,
With His grace redeems us all:
Praise Him, praise Him Christians, evermore!

O how joyfully, o how blessedly,
Comes the glory of Christmastime!
Hosts of angels from on high,
Sing, rejoicing, in the sky:
Praise Him, praise Him Christians, evermore!

  1. catterelEditI have to agree with you, dear Uta, that Advent and Christmas in German-speaking countries is so much more enjoyable than in Engliash-speaking lands, even in these over-commercialised days. I don’t know a good English word for ‘besinnlich’ – but it’s that element that makes the difference. I have been fortunate to spend many Advents and Christmases in snowy mountain settings, and there is nothing to compare with trudging through the snow to midnight mass (even though I’m not a Catholic!)Reply
    1. auntyuta EditThank you so much, dear Cat, for commenting. Snowy settings of course tend to have a very calming influence. I think this is why it is extra special to have snow around Christmastime. Here in Australia we have in December a great summer holiday season. Christmas is very different from what it used to be for us in Germany. However we do stick to some traditions. For instance listening to certain Christmas songs brings back memories of a time long gone!

Leonard Cohen – So Long Marianne (Live in London)

Lyrics: Come over to the window, my little darling I’d like to try to read your palm I used to think I was some kind of Gypsy boy Before I let you take me home Now so long, Marianne, it’s time that we began To laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it all again Well you know that I love to live with you But you make me forget so very much I forget to pray for the angels And then the angels forget to pray for us Now so long, Marianne, it’s time that we began To laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it all again We met when we were almost young Deep in the green lilac park You held on to me like I was a crucifix As we went kneeling through the dark Now so long, Marianne, it’s time that we began To laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it all again Your letters they all say that you’re beside me now Then why do I feel alone? I’m standing on a ledge and your fine spider web Is fastening my ankle to a stone Now so long, Marianne, it’s time that we began To laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it all again For now I need your hidden love I’m cold as a new razor blade You left when I told you I was curious I never said that I was brave Now so long, Marianne, it’s time that we began To laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it all again Oh, you are really such a pretty one I see you’ve gone and changed your name again And just when I climbed this whole mountainside To wash my eyelids in the rain! Now so long, Marianne, it’s time that we began To laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it all again
