Melodie: Matthias Greitter, 1525
Text: Sebald Heyden, 1530

O Mensch, bewein dein Sünde groß,
darum Christus seins Vaters Schoß
äußert’ und kam auf Erden;
von einer Jungfrau rein und zart
für uns er hier geboren ward,
er wollt der Mittler werden.
Den Toten er das Leben gab
und tat dabei all Krankheit ab,
bis sich die Zeit herdrange,
dass er für uns geopfert würd,
trüg unsrer Sünden schwere Bürd
wohl an dem Kreuze lange.


(attempted English translation)

O mankind, lament your great sins
for which Christ left his Father’s bosom
and came upon earth;
from a young woman pure and gentle
he was born here for us.
he willed to be our mediator,
to the dead he gave life
and thereby banished all illness
until the time came to be
that he would be sacrificed for us,
bearing the heavy burden of our sins
perfectly on the cross for a long time.
