Ja! Ich glaub: solches hat er vollbracht

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ja! Ich glaub: solches hat er vollbracht,
Des Vaters Zorn zunicht gemacht,
Der Menschheit ewig Heil erworben
Und ist dafür am Kreuz verstorben.

Doch weiß ich, solches kommt zugut,
Nur dem, der heilig ist und gut:
Durch gute Werk und Frommheit eben
Erkauft er sich ein ewig Leben.

Da sieh, so steht um meine Werk:
Von Sünden hab ich einen Berg
So überschwer auf mich geladen,
Daß mich Gott gar nit kann begnaden,
Als er der Höchstgerechte ist.

Oui ! Je crois : Il a fait ces choses

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

Oui ! Je crois : Il a fait ces choses :
La colère du Père a été apaisée,
Il a apporté à l'humanité le salut éternel
Et il est mort pour cela sur la croix.

Pourtant je sais que cela ne profitera
Qu'à celui qui est saint et bon :
À travers ses bonnes actions et sa piété juste
Il s'achète une vie éternelle.

Regardez, ainsi sont mes actions :
J'ai une montagne de péchés
Tellement lourde pour moi,
Que Dieu ne peut m'accorder sa grâce
Car il est le plus juste.
