Title:

Warum betrübst du dich, mein Herz?

Soloists:

A

Choir:

SATB

Instruments:

2 Oda, 2 Vn, Va, Bc

Text:

Warum betrübst du dich, mein Herz?
Bekümmerst dich und trägest Schmerz
Nur um das zeitliche Gut?
Ach, ich bin arm,
Mich drücken schwere Sorgen.
Vom Abend bis zum Morgen
Währt meine liebe Not.
Dass Gott erbarm!
Wer wird mich noch erlösen
Vom Leibe dieser bösen
Und argen Welt?
Wie elend ist's um mich bestellt!
Ach! wär ich doch nur tot!
Vertrau du deinem Herren Gott,
Der alle Ding erschaffen hat.
