Gott der Vater wohn uns bei (BuxWV 190)

 

God the Father, be our Stay,
Oh, let us perish never.
Cleanse us from our sins, we pray,
And grant us life forever.
Keep us from the Evil One;
Uphold our faith most holy,
Grant us to trust Thee solely
With humble hearts and lowly.

 

Herr Christ, der einig Gottes Sohn (2 versus) (BuxWV 191, BuxWV 192)

 

 

Rafaello Sanzio:  The Disputation (detail), Apostolic Palace, The Vatican, 1510

O Thou, of God the Father,
The true Eternal Son,
Of whom 'tis surely written,
That Thou with Him art one,
Thou art the bright and morning star,
Beyond all other radiance
Thy glory streams afar.

 

 

Herr Jesu Crist ich weiss gar wohl (BuxWV 193)

 

Ich dank dir, lieber Herre (BuxWV 194)

 

I thank you, dear Lord
that you have guarded me
this dangerous night
in it I lay so hard
clasped in darkness
and great need,
from which I have escaped,
You helped me Lord God!
