Ihr empfangt die Kraft (You'll receive the power)

Ref.: Receive the power, be witnesses for me,
receive the power, bewitnesses for me,
witnesses for me.

1) Hands meant for caring, bread meant for sharing
you'll be witnesses for me, you'll be witnesses for me.
Hände, die heilen, Brot, das wir teilen -
ihr werdet meine Zeugen sein.

2) Lips meant for praising, bones meant for raising,
you'll be witnesses for me, you'll be witnesses for me.
Blinde, die sehen, Lahme, die gehen -
ihr werdet meine Zeugen sein.

3) Words to stop sorrow, hope for tomorrow,
you'll be witnesses for me, you'll be witnesses for me.
Trost in den Sorgen, Hoffnung für morgen -
ihr werdet meine Zeugen sein.

4) Joy meant for giving, hearts meant for living,
you'll be witnesses for me, you'll be witnesses for me.
Freude, die ansteckt, Ruf, der vom Tod weckt -
ihr werdet meine Zeugen sein.

Ref.: You'll receive the power, be witnesses for me.
You'll be filled with power, be witnesses for me,
when the Holy Spirit comes upon you.
Ihr empfangt die Kraft, seid Zeugen in der Welt,
wenn Gottes Geist auf euch kommt.
Receive the power, be witnesses for me,
receive the power, be witnesses for me.
