Holy Saturday: St. John's Passion, Part 35

The Passion according to St. John
set to music by Johann Sebastian Bach
Part 35


Zerfließe, mein Herze, in Fluten der Zähren
Dem Höchsten zu Ehren!
Erzähle der Welt und dem Himmel die Not:
Dein Jesus ist tot!

Melt away, my heart, in floods of tears
to the highest praise!
Tell the world and the heavens of your anguish:
Your Jesus is dead!
