'Herr Jesu Christ, AHR'R Mensch und Gott'
('Lord Jesu Christ , Thou Man and God ')
Relayed from St. Ann's Church, Manchester

I. - Chorus:
Lord Jesu Christ who Man became,
And knew Man's sorrow, grief and shame, Who on the Cross for me didst die.
So Grace ight come from God on high. 0 Thou, our trials who didst know To me a sinner mercy show

II. - Recitative (Tenor):
Yea. though mv soul, when that gread hoar appeareth, Shall fear the icy hand of death, and shrink before him when he neareth,
Yea when my voice can nought but bitter sighings make,
And when my heart shall break : enough.
I trust in Him that saith,
'Behold, I am with thee'; 'twas He who died upon the Cross for me,
'Tis He, my soul to peace through travail leadeth,
And for my pardon lntercedeth.

III. - Aria (Soprano):
My soul shall rest in Jesu's keeping. When Earth this mortal body takes.
Oh, ring out soon, ye bells that call me
Of death no terror doth appal me.
With Jesus then my soul awakes.

IV. - Recitative and Aria (Bass):
When man at last Thy trumpet Heareth
And when the sea and land,
Yea, all that man doth cherish In ruin disappearcth,
Have mercy, Lord, nor let me perish;
Thy servant. I before Thy Throne shall stand,
A guilty sinner humbly praying .. Do Thou abide with me
My Jesu ; my trust is in Thee,
O comfort Thou my spirit, saying.
In truth I say to thee,
Though Heav'n and the earth are destroyed for ever,
So fear not, Thy Saviour forsaketh thee never.
Lo, in that Day they shall not grieve. Nor shall they perish, that believe, Put all thy trust, my child, in Me;
For life everlasting to mankind I gave.
O'ercoming the power of death and the grave."

V. - Choral:
Oh, Lord, forgive Thy children all. And teach us to await Thy call
With gladsome heart and trusting soul; Oh, let Thy Spirit make us whole,
And give us Grace Thy way to keep, Until in Thee we fall on sleep.

(English Text by D. Millar Craig. Copyright B.B.C. 1929.)
