Lamb of God

J.S. Bach – St. Matthew Passion BWV 244

Kommt, ihr Töchter, helft mir klagen,
Come, you daughters, help me to lament,
Sehet – Wen? – den Bräutigam,
See-Whom ? -the bridegroom,
Seht ihn – Wie? – als wie ein Lamm!
See him- How ? -like a lamb!
Sehet, – Was? – seht die Geduld,
See – What ? -see his patience,
Seht – Wohin? – auf unsre Schuld;
See – Where ? – our guilt;
Sehet ihn aus Lieb und Huld
See how from love and grace
Holz zum Kreuze selber tragen!
He bears the wood of the cross himself!

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.
