Translated Hymn by Volbrecht Nagel (#155)

July 22, 2010 at 6:03 pm (Nagel Roots) ()

Verse 1

What was it, blessed God,
Led Thee to give Thy son,
To yield They well-beloved
For us by sin undone?
‘Twas love unbounded led Thee thus
To give They well-beloved for us.

Verse 2

What led They Son, O God!
To leave They throne on high,
To shed His precious blood,
To suffer and to die?
‘Twas love, unbounded love to us,
Led Him to die and suffer thus.

    My Mother Elizabeth lived in Thrissur and remembers the Nagel Family . She now lives in a place called Paravattani which is next to Nellikunnu . I am amazed to read about the blessed Nagel family – in deed and in song . May the Lord be praised forever .
