4. Zion hört die Wächter singen
5. So geh herein zu mir (at 3:19)

Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra
Ton Koopman, Director

4. Chorale (T)
Zion hears the watchmen singing,
Her heart within for joy is dancing,
She watches and makes haste to rise.
Her friend comes from heaven glorious,
In mercy strong, in truth most mighty,
Her light is bright, her star doth rise.
Now come, thou precious crown,
Lord Jesus, God's own Son!
Hosannah pray!
We follow all
To joy's glad hall
And join therein the evening meal.

5. Recit. (B)
So come within to me,
Thou mine elected bride!
I have myself to thee
Eternally betrothed.
I will upon my heart,
Upon my arm like as a seal engrave thee
And to thy troubled eye bring pleasure.
Forget, O spirit, now
The fear, the pain
Which thou hast had to suffer;
Upon my left hand shalt thou rest,
And this my right hand shall embrace thee.
