Cantata BWV 26

Mvt. 4

Aria

Title:

An irdische Schätze das Herze zu hängen

Soloists:

B

   

Instruments:

3 Ob, Bc

Text:

An irdische Schätze das Herze zu hängen,
Ist eine Verführung der törichten Welt.
Wie leichtlich entstehen verzehrende Gluten,
Wie rauschen und reißen die wallenden Fluten,
Bis alles zerschmettert in Trümmern zerfällt.

CT:

Ach wie flüchtig, ach wie nichtig verse 10 (paraphrased)

Author:

Michael Franck
