Cantata BWV 127

Mvt. 4

Recitative & Aria

Title:

Wenn einstens die Posaunen schallen

Soloists:

B

   

Instruments:

Tr, 2 Vn, Va, Bc

Text:

Wenn einstens die Posaunen schallen,
Und wenn der Bau der Welt
Nebst denen Himmelsfesten
Zerschmettert wird zerfallen,
So denke mein, mein Gott, im besten;
Wenn sich dein Knecht einst vors Gerichte stellt,
Da die Gedanken sich verklagen,
So wollest du allein,
O Jesu, mein Fürsprecher sein
Und meiner Seele tröstlich sagen:

 

Fürwahr, fürwahr, euch sage ich:
Wenn Himmel und Erde im Feuer vergehen,
So soll doch ein Gläubiger ewig bestehen.
Er wird nicht kommen ins Gericht
Und den Tod ewig schmecken nicht.
Nur halte dich,
Mein Kind, an mich:
Ich breche mit starker und helfender Hand
Des Todes gewaltig geschlossenes Band.

CT:

Christ, wahr Mensch und Gott 1st part: verse 5 (paraphrased); 2nd part: verses 6-7 (paraphrased)
