Holy Saturday: St. John's Passion, Parts 36, 37 and 38

The Passion according to St. John
set to music by Johann Sebastian Bach
Parts 36, 37 and 38


Als sie aber zu Jesu kamen,
da sie sahen, dass er schon gestorben war,
brachen sie ihm die Beine nicht;
sondern der Kriegsknechte einer eröffnete
seine Seite mit einem Speer,
und alsobald ging Blut und Wasser heraus.

But when they came to Jesus,
They had seen that He was already dead,
they did not break His legs;
but one of the soldiers opened up
His side with a spear,
and and immediately blood and water came out.
