Cantata BWV 83

Mvt. 2

Aria (Chorale) & Recitative

Title:

Herr, nun lässest du deinen Diener in Friede fahren

Soloists:

B

   

Instruments:

2 Vn, Va, Bc

Text:

Herr, nun lässest du deinen Diener in Friede fahren,
wie du gesaget hast.

 

Was uns als Menschen schrecklich scheint,
Ist uns ein Eingang zu dem Leben.
Es ist der Tod
Ein Ende dieser Zeit und Not,
Ein Pfand, so uns der Herr gegeben
Zum Zeichen, dass er's herzlich meint
Und uns will nach vollbrachtem Ringen
Zum Frieden bringen.
Und weil der Heiland nun
Der Augen Trost, des Herzens Labsal ist,
Was Wunder, dass ein Herz des Todes Furcht vergisst!
Es kann den erfreuten Ausspruch tun:
