Come sweet hour of death

Cantata BWV 161

Komm du süße Todesstunde
Come Sweet Hour of Death

  Komm, du süße Todesstunde,
Come, sweet hour of death,
Da mein Geist
when my spirit
Honig speist
feeds on honey
Aus des Löwen Munde;
from the lion’s mouth;
Mache meinen Abschied süße,
make my departure sweet,
Säume nicht,
do not delay,
Letztes Licht,
last light
Dass ich meinen Heiland küsse.
so that I may kiss my saviour.
   

 

About Michaela

I am a wanderer and a wonderer, like you are. I love our journey and to walk in the company of friends – to learn, experience, share, laugh, cry and above all I simply love this marvelous, magical, mysterious life. I have no plan (cannot believe I am saying this) and my only intention is to be truthful to myself and others.
