Herr, Unser Herr

Something for Good Friday

The opening chorus of Bach’s St. John Passion, set to images from the Passion of the Christ.


Lord, our master, whose glory fills the whole earth, show us by your Passion that you, the true eternal Son of God, triumph even in the deepest humiliation.

    One of my most memorable college experiences was singing in a choir that performed this for its spring season. Great piece of music.

    I was at that concert. It was very good 😉

    Thank you for this.

    “We adore You, O Christ, and we bless You. Because by Your Holy Cross You have redeemed the world.”

    I am not worthy.
