Chor

Language: German (Deutsch) after the German (Deutsch)

Wer wird Zähren sanften Mitleids
nicht mit diesen Frommen weinen,
die dich, Herr, im Tode sahn?
 
Wer mit ihnen nicht verstummen,
wer mit ihnen nicht verstummen,
die dich, Herr, im Tode sahn.
 
Wer wird Tränen sanften Mitleids
nicht mit diesen Frommen weinen1?
Wer mit ihnen nicht verstummen,
die dich, Herr, im Tode sahn?
 
Wer wird sich nicht innig freuen,
dass der Gottversöhner ihnen,
Himmel, deinen Vorschmack gab,
ach, dass Jesus Christus ihnen,
Himmel, deinen Vorschmack gab.

Who does not shed tears of gentle...

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Who does not shed tears of gentle compassion
with these pious ones,
which you, Lord, beheld in death?
 
Who does not fall silent with them,
Who does not fall silent with them,
which you, Lord, beheld in death?

Who does not shed tears of gentle compassion
with these pious ones,
Who does not fall silent with them,
which you, Lord, beheld in death?

Who does not rejoice inwardly,
that God’s reconciler [Jesus],
gave us a foretaste of heaven,
ah, that Jesus Christ for our sakes,
gave us a foretaste of heaven.
