The Passion according to St. John
set to music by Johann Sebastian Bach

O große Lieb, o Lieb ohn alle Maße,
Die dich gebracht auf diese Marterstraße
Ich lebte mit der Welt in Lust und Freuden,
Und du musst leiden.

O great love, O love beyond all measure,
Which you have brought along this path of torment,
I live in this world of lust and pleasure,
And you must suffer.
