6. Aria (B)
When strength and help must fail at times,
As all the world doth witness,
He comes, he helps abundantly,
The maker comes, inclining
His father's eyes below to them
Who else would nowhere find repose.
Give to our God all honor!

7. Aria (A)
I will thee all my life's extent,
O God, from henceforth honor;
One shall, O God, the song of praise
In ev'ry region hearken.
My heart be fully stirred with life,
My soul and body let rejoice.
Give to our God all honor!

8. Recit. (T)
Ye, who on Christ's own name do call,
Give to our God all honor!
Ye, who do God's great might confess,
Give to our God all honor!
All those false idols put to scorn,
The Lord is God, the Lord is God:
Give to our God all honor!

9. Chorale (S, A, T, B)
So come before his countenance
With glad, triumphant dancing;
Discharge ye now your solemn oath
And let us sing with gladness;
God hath all things so well designed
And all things, all things rightly done,
Give to our God all honor!
