From the Orgelbuchlein, No. 38 of 45: "Durch Adams Fall ist ganz verderbt" (BWV 637) 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, sample set from Voxus.

1. Because of Adam’s fall, human nature
and behavior has been completely corrupted.
The same poison has been inherited by us,
so that we would not be able to recover
without hope from God, who has saved us
from the great harm that was done when the serpent overcame Eve
and brought God’s wrath upon herself.

3. Just as another's guilt has brought us shame in Adam,
so another's grace has brought us
all reconciliation in Christ;
and just as for me through Adams fall
everything perished eternally,
so God through Christ's death
has renewed what was ruined.

4. He therefore gave his son to us,
while we were still his enemies.
For our sake he hung on the cross,
was put to death and ascended to heaven.
Through this we have been set free from death and torment.
If we place our trust in this stronghold,
the Father's word, why should anyone have any horror of death?

9. Your holy word
is a blazing lantern for my feet,
a light that shows me the way forward;
As this Morning Star rises upon us we understand
the great gifts that God's Spirit has certainly promised to us,
and in these we have our hope.
