Music For Lent, 2016 (Day 12)

Another Lenten Sunday, another aria from Brockes Passion. Not from Handel's setting though, but from Johann Friedrich Fasch's.

Sünder, schaut mit Furcht und Zagen
eurer Sünden Scheusal an.
Da derselben Straf’ und Plagen
Gottes Sohn kaum tragen kann. 
Sinners, look with fear and hesitation
on the dreadfulness of your sins,
since their punishment and torments
can hardly be borne by the Son of God.
