This ancient Hymn is performed at Easter. The tune is labeled PUER NOBIS and is a melody from a fifteenth-century manuscript from Trier. However, the tune probably dates from an earlier time and may even have folk roots. PUER NOBIS was first altered in Spangenberg's Christliches GesangbUchlein (1568), in Petri's famous Piae Cantiones (1582).  Most hymnals have it in the key of D, so I arranged it in D. The lyrics are noted with the music for verses 1 and 2 and verses three and four are noted on the end of the 2nd page. 

The chords for the harmony are noted above the melody. The music is in 3/4 and has no eighth notes. Though the harmony is somewhat reduced from the hymnal , 4-part version, it still has some color and can work to accompany singing nicely. Adult beginners will also get satisfaction from this arrangement, the 4 part writing in hymnals us usually too hard for this level player, that is why I arranged it so more people can enjoy this lovely Easter song.
