Cantata BWV156
I'm leaving to Thee, my Lord God

 

Lyrics

I stand with one foot in the grave;

Soon my sick body will descend into there;

Come, dear God, [take my soul] when it pleases you;

I have already put my house in order;

Just let my end be blessed.

 

Deal with me, God, in accordance with your goodness;

Help me in my suffering;

What I beseech you, do not deny me.

When my soul shall part 

Then take it, Lord, into your hands.

All’s well that ends well.

About my new cd single titled “I am leaving to Thee, my Lord God”.

I arranged and wrote the music score in December 2022, and recorded it on 11th February 2023, between 1:15 and 1:40 am of that day.

The piece is one of the most well-known compositions by the German composer Johann Sebastian Bach. The original title is “ICH STEH’ MIT EINEM FUB IM GRABE” (BWV156). The piece was performed for the first time in the Evangelical Church on Leipzig on 23th January 1729.

To listen to the recording and watch the video score and obtain more information about the work, the videos and the score and the whole process of musical creative elaboration, visit my website. The recording will also be available on youtube and instagram.

O my soul, wait only in God, for my hope comes from him.

Psalm 62:5


 

To the Lord God, to the eternal King, to the only God, immortal and invisible, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.

God bless us in the name of the Lord Jesus, our Good Shepherd and Savior for Eternity.
