An offering will be taken at this time to benefit the Bach Vespers Concert Series. Silent Meditation/Prayer and The Lord’s Prayer Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

W E L C OM E A N D I N T R OD U C T ION

Opening Prayer Light and peace, in Jesus Christ our Lord. Almighty God, we give You thanks for surrounding us, as daylight fades, with the brightness of the vesper light; and as we implore of Your great mercy, that as You enfold us with the radiance of this light, so You would shine into our hearts the brightness of your Holy Spirit, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Cantata BWV 12 “Weinen, Klagen, Sorgen, Zagen” 1. Sinfonia

1. Sinfonia

2. Aria Weinen, Klagen, Sorgen, Zagen, Angst und Not Sind der Christen Tränenbrot, Die das Zeichen Jesu tragen.

2. Chorus Weeping, lamentation, worry, despair, anguish and trouble are the Christian’s bread of tears, that bear the marks of Jesus.

3. Recitative Wir müssen durch viel Trübsal in das Reich Gottes eingehen. (Acts 14:22)

3. Recitative (Arioso) A We must enter the Kingdom of God through much sorrow.

4. Arie A Kreuz und Krone sind verbunden, Kampf und Kleinod sind vereint. Christen haben alle Stunden Ihre Qual und ihren Feind, Doch ihr Trost sind Christi Wunden.

4. Aria A Cross and crown are bound together, struggle and reward are united. Christians have at all times their suffering and their enemy, yet their comforts are Christ’s wounds.

5. Arie B Ich folge Christo nach, Von ihm will ich nicht lassen Im Wohl und Ungemach, Im Leben und Erblassen. Ich küsse Christi Schmach, Ich will sein Kreuz umfassen. Ich folge Christo nach, Von ihm will ich nicht lassen. 6. Arie (mit instrumental Choral) T Sei getreu, alle Pein Wird doch nur ein Kleines sein. Nach dem Regen Blüht der Segen, Alles Wetter geht vorbei. Sei getreu, sei getreu! (Instrumental Chorale: Jesu, meine Freude, meines Herzens Weide, Jesu, meine Zier! Ach, wie lang, ach, lange ist dem Herzen bange und verlangt nach dir! Gottes Lamm, mein Bräutigam, Außer dir soll mir auf Erden nichts sonst Liebers werden.) (“Jesu, meine Freude,” verse 1) 7. Choral Was Gott tut, das ist wohlgetan, Dabei will ich verbleiben. Es mag mich auf die rauhe Bahn Not, Tod und Elend treiben. So wird Got mich Ganz väterlich In seinen Armen halten: Drum laß ich ihn nur walten. ( “Was Gott tut, das ist wohlgetan,” verse 6)

5. Aria B I follow after Christ, I will not let go of Him in prosperity and hardship, in life and mortality. I kiss Christ’s shame, I will embrace His cross. I follow after Christ, I will not let go of Him. 6. Aria (with instrumental Chorale) T Be faithful, all pain will yet be only a little thing. After the rain blessing blossoms, all storms pass away. Be faithful, be faithful! (Instrumental Chorale: Jesus, my joy, my heart’s pasture, Jesus, my treasure! Ah, how long, ah long has my heart suffered and longed for you! God’s lamb, my bridegroom, besides You on earth nothing shall be dearer to me.) 7. Chorale What God does, is well done, I will cling to this. Along the harsh path trouble, death and misery may drive me. Yet God will, just like a father, hold me in His arms: therefore I let Him alone rule.
