Xing nian kuai le!
Now comes an early spring!
Now is the time to awaken love!
Spring bursts up and flowers bloom;
Christ appears— all earth’s at play!
Uplift your heads;
Angels, humans and blue birds too;
Sing you creatures, all creatures sing!
Trees and fields in bloom appear;
Speak our Lord, and let us hear;
Let all souls drooping— now rejoice.
To raise our earth to Heaven’s play—
Our King appears— Epiphany!
