--- Texte de la cantate --- Text of the cantata
#1 Largo : Sinfonia

Mon cœur était plein d'affliction ;
mais tes consolations délectent mon âme.
I had much affliction in my heart,
but your consolations restore my soul.

#3 Aria Soprano
Soupir, larmes, chagrin, détresse,
Attente anxieuse, crainte et mort
Rongent mon cœur opprimé,
Je ressens affliction et douleur.
Sighs, tears, grief, distress,
anxious longing, fear and death
gnaw at/prey upon my oppressed heart
I feel misery, pain.

#5 Aria Tenor
Des flots de larmes amères
Ne cessent de s'écouler en mugissant.
La tempête et les vagues me meurtrissent
Et cette mer d'affliction
Veut affaiblir mon esprit et ma vie,
Mât et ancre vont se rompre,
Je sombre dans l'abîme,
Où je vois le gouffre de l'enfer.
Streams of salty tears,
floods rush always along.
Storm and waves harm me
and this sea full of sorrows
wants to weaken my spirit and life.
Mast and anchor are about to break,
Here I sink into the ground,
there I look into the abyss of Hell.
