Cantata on Chorale For Reformation Sunday Text by Salomo Franck
1. Eine Feste Burg Ist Unser Gott 2. Alles Was Von Gott geboren/Mit Unser Macht (at 4:56 ) 3. Erwäge Doch, Kind Gottes (at 8:27)
Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra Ton Koopman, Director
1. Chorus (S, A, T, B) A mighty fortress is our God, A sure defense and armor; He helps us free from ev'ry need Which us till now hath stricken. The ancient wicked foe, Grim is his intent, Vast might and deceit His cruel weapons are, On earth is not his equal.
2. Aria (B) and Chorale (S) (B) All that which of God is fathered Is for victory intended.
(S) With our own might is nothing done, We face so soon destruction. He strives for us, the righteous man, Whom God himself hath chosen.
(B) Who hath Christ's own bloodstained flag In baptism sworn allegiance Wins in spirit ever more.
(S) Ask thou who he is? His name: Jesus Christ, The Lord of Sabaoth, There is no other god, The field is his forever.
(B) All that which of God is fathered Is for victory intended.
3. Recit. (B) Consider well, O child of God, this love so mighty, Which Jesus hath In his own blood for thee now written; By which he thee For war opposing Satan's host, opposing world and error, Enlisted thee! Yield not within thy spirit To Satan and his viciousness! Let not thy heart, Which is on earth God's heav'nly kingdom, Become a wasteland! Confess thy guilt with grief and pain, That Christ's own soul to thine be firm united!
