Every age and hour



No. 26 (52) Chorale

In Meines Herzens Grunde,
In the bottom of my heart,
Dein Nam und Kreuz allein
your name and cross alone
funkelt all Zeit und Stunde,
shines forth every age and hour,
drauf kann ich frohlich sein.
for which I can be joyful.
Erschein mir in dem Bilde
Appear before me in the image,
zu Trost in meiner Not,
as comfort in my distress:
wie du, Herr Christ, so milde
how you, Lord Christ, so abundantly
Dich hast geblut'zu Tod!
did bleed to death!

~From Bach's St. John's Passion

That is a glorious picture! And Bach's words are great, too. :)
