For SATB or Unison with optional keyboard. Part of our Chorister Collection, our series of masterworks that are adapted for use with children or even soloists! Curated and edited by Thom Pavlechko. An arrangement of the aria Zion hört die Wächter singen from Bach's Cantata 140 (Wachet auf), based on the chorale of the same name.
"Sleepers, wake, for night is flying,"
The watchmen on the heights are crying:
"Awake, Jerusalem at last!"
Midnight hears the welcome voices,
And at the thrilling cry rejoices:
"Come forth, you maidens, night is past.
The bridegroom comes! Awake!
Your lamps with gladness take!"
"Your lamps prepare;
Go meet him there,
That you the wedding feast may share."
