The Passion according to St. John
set to music by Johann Sebastian Bach
Parts 21, 22 and 23


Und die Kriegsknechte flochten
eine Krone von Dornen
und satzten sie auf sein Haupt
und legten ihm ein Purpurkleid an
und sprachen:
Sei gegrüßet, lieber Jüdenkönig!
Und gaben ihm Backenstreiche.

And the soldiers braided
a crown of thorns
and sat it on His head
and put a purple robe on Him
and said,
Hail, dear King of the Jews!
and gave him blows to the back.
