I.-Chorus:
Thou knowest me, God, Thou has searched my heart.
0 try my thoughts and know if they be wicked.
II.-Recitative (Tenor) :
See how the curse that on the Earth was bound
The hearts of men also hath smitten!
])pep in whose soul that curse hath bitten How may he hope Thy goodly fruit to bring forth
Where only thorns of sin can spring forth, And thistles choke the ground.
Though oft may the spirits of darkness draw nigh thec,
Like angels of light, but to try thee:
So mid the thorns of thine own sowing. Though hidden, yet may grapes bo growing.
A wolf may hide himself in sheep's fair clothing,
But there will come n day
When he in terror and in loathing Will turn nnd flee away.
III-Aria (Alto):
A day shall come.
When, ns our judge returned,
Deceitfulness and lies He shall strike dnmh.
When in IIis wrath shall sin be burned. All vanity and falsehood spurned.
IV.- Recitative (Bass):
So pure not ev'n the heav'ns are seen,
As man before his Judge must stand, of guilt made clean.
Who, through the Saviour's blood made holy,
Tn faith abldeth, pure and lowly,
He knows no bitter judgment him awaits. Him, if his sin yet grieve,
Hath he but weakly striven, So he in Christ believe,
Shall righteousness be given.
V.-Duet (Tenor and Buss):
By sin is mankind yet assailed,
That Adam's fall on us hath brought. Alone him to the Cros who clingeth
The Saviour grace and mercy bringeth, For him Salvation sure is wrought.
VI.- Choral:
Thy blood that freely flow'd, Such store of grnce bestow'd, The whole earth purifying
Through Thee, Thy Cross, Thy dying, From evil and temptation, It gave all men salvation.
English text by D. Millar Craig.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
