Composer: Bach, J. S.
Sample Producer: Voxus Virtual Organs
Sample Set: Müller Grote of Sint Bavo extended
Software: Hauptwerk VII
Genre: Baroque
Description:
From the Orgelbuchlein, No. 35 of 45: "Liebster Jesu, wir sind hier" (BWV 633) by J.S. Bach (1685-1750).

Featured organ is the 1738 Christian Müller organ from St. Bavo Church, Haarlem, in Holland, which consists of 3 manuals and 118 ranks. I am using the sample set from Voxus organs.

ENGLISH TRANSLATION OF CHORALE:
1.Dearest Jesus, we are here
To listen to you and your word.
Direct our minds and desires
to the sweet teaching of heaven:
so that our hearts may be
completely drawn from earth to you.

2.Our knowledge and understanding
are overshadowed in darkness
where the hand of your Spirit
does not fill us with clear light:
to think, act, and write what is good -
you yourself must do this through us.

3.O the splendour of your glory,
light from light born from God!
Make all of us ready, by opening
our hearts, mouths and ears:
Grant that our prayers, supplications,
and singing may be victorious, Lord Jesus.

GERMAN CHORALE TEXT:
1. Liebster Jesu! wir sind hier,
Dich und dein Wort anzuhören.
Lenke Sinnen und Begier
Auf die süßen Himmelslehren:
Daß die Herzen von der Erden
Ganz zu dir gezogen werden.

2. Unser Wissen und Verstand
Ist mit Finsterniß verhüllet,
Wo nicht deines Geistes Hand
Uns mit hellem Licht erfüllet:
Gutes denken, thun und dichten
Mußt du selbst in uns verrichten.

3. O du Glanz der Herrlichkeit,
Licht vom Licht aus Gott geboren!
Mach uns allesamt bereit,
Öffne Herzen, Mund und Ohren:
Unser Bitten, Flehn und Singen
Laß, Herr Jesu, wohl gelingen.
