Good Friday: St. John's Passion, Parts 10, 11, 12 and 13

The Passion according to St. John
set to music by Johann Sebastian Bach
Parts 10, 11, 12 and 13


Ich, ich und meine Sünden,
Die sich wie Körnlein finden
Des Sandes an dem Meer,
Die haben dir erreget
Das Elend, das dich schläget,
Und das betrübte Marterheer.

I, I and my sins,
those which are like grains
of sand beside the sea,
These have awakened in you
the sorrow the strikes you,
And the distressing torment.
