1 God's home is here with humankind,
for heaven broke out on earth when Yesu,
born a little child,

We see that Christ, once slain by sin,
is here alive again.

3 Alive again and with us all,
Christ leads to victory.

4 So do not fear the tyrants' power
nor think that God might fail.
God's home is here this very hour,
and goodness will prevail.
