Music For Lent, 2016 (Day 11)

For today's Lenten musical reflection, "Mache dich, mein Herze, rein" from the transcendent St. Matthew's Passion of J. S. Bach. (I'm sure we'll be hearing from Bach and his Matthäus-Passion again in the coming days.)

Mache dich, mein Herze, rein,
Ich will Jesum selbst begraben.
Denn er soll nunmehr in mir
Für und für
Seine süße Ruhe haben.
Welt, geh aus, laß Jesum ein!
Make thyself clean, my heart,
I will myself entomb Jesus.
For he shall henceforth in me
For ever and ever
Take his sweet rest.
World, begone, let Jesus in!
