Von Gott will ich nicht lassen (2 versus) (BuxWV 220, BuxWV 221)

 

From God shall naught divide me,
For he is true for aye,
And on my path will guide me,
Who else should often stray,
His ever bounteous hand
By night and day is heedful,
And gives me what is needful,
Where'er I go or stand.

 

Wär Gott nicht mit uns diese Zeit (BuxWV 222)

 

 

Marc Chagall:  God Delivering His People

Were God not with us all this time,
Then let Israel say it:
Were God not with us all this time,
We would have surely lost courage,
For such a tiny band we are,
Despised by so much of mankind,
They all oppose us ever.

 

Wir danken dir, Herr Jesu Christ (BuxWV 224)

 

To Thee, Lord Jesus, thanks we give,
Who died for us, that we might live,
And thro' Thy holy precious blood
Hast made us righteous before God.
