Good Friday: St. John's Passion, Parts 7, 8, and 9

The Passion according to St. John
set to music by Johann Sebastian Bach
Parts 7, 8, and 9


Von den Stricken meiner Sünden
Mich zu entbinden,
Wird mein Heil gebunden.
Mich von allen Lasterbeulen
Völlig zu heilen,
Läßt er sich verwunden.

From the bondage of my sins
to release me,
My Savior is bound.
From all my bulging vices
fully to save,
He lets himself be wounded.
