Composer: Bach, J. S.
Sample Producer: Pipeloops
Sample Set: Bach-Organ Regensburg
Software: Hauptwerk VII
Genre: Baroque
Description:
From the Orgelbuchlen:
Herr Christ, der einge Gottes-sohn (or Herr Gott, nun sei gepreiset), BWV 601 - J.S. Bach (1685-1750)

3 Manual, 48 stop Hendrik Ahrend "Bach Organ" (2020), sampled by Pipeloops and recorded through Hauptwerk technology.

I love this chorale text, and I think Bach was wonderfully inspired by it.

1. Herr Christ, der einig Gottes Sohn
Vaters in Ewigkeit,
Aus sein Herzen entsprossen,
Gleichwie geschrieben steht,
Er is der Morgensterne,
Sein Glänzen streckt er ferne
Vor andern Sternen klar;

[1. Lord Jesus Christ, the only Son of God
the Father from eternity,
sprung from his heart,
as it stands written:
He is the morning star,
who makes his radiance shine far
beyond all other stars;]

2. Für uns ein Mensch geboren
Im lezten Teil der Zeit,
Dass wir nicht wärn verloren
Vor Gott in Ewigkeit,
Den Tod für uns zerbrochen,
Den Himmel auggeschlossen,
Das Leben wiederbracht:

[2. He was born for us as a man
in the last period of time
so that we would not be lost
from God for ever,
he has broken death for us,
opened up heaven, and
brought back life.]

3. Lass uns in deiner Liebe
und Kenntnis nehmen zu,
dass wir am Glauben bleiben,
dir dienen im Geist
so, dass wir hier mögen schmecken
dein Süßigkeit im Herzen
und dürsten stets nach dir.

[3. Grant to us that in your love
and knowledge we may increase,
that we may remain in the faith,
serve you in spirit in such a way
that we may here taste
your sweetness in our hearts
and constantly thirst for you.]

4. Du Schöpfer aller Dinge,
du väterliche Kraft,
regierst von End zu Ende
kräftig aus eigner Macht.
Das Herz uns zu dir wende
und kehr ab unsre Sinne,
dass sie nicht irrn von dir.

[4. Oh creator of all things,
With the Father’s power.
rule for ever and ever
mighty in your own strength.
Turn our hearts to you
and turn us away from our sins
so that we do not stray from you.]
