If the tears on my cheeks …

St Matthew Passion – H Rilling: Können Tränen meiner Wangen nichts erlangen

Aria Alto
Violino I/II, Continuo

Können Tränen meiner Wangen
If the tears on my cheeks can
Nichts erlangen,
Achieve nothing,
O, so nehmt mein Herz hinein!
O then take my heart!
Aber lasst es bei den Fluten,
But let it for the streams,
Wenn die Wunden milde bluten,
As the wounds gently bleed
Auch die Opferschale sein!
Also be the sacrificial cup!

St. Matthew Passion BWV 244 / 52

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.
