Description

An arrangement of the hymn Herzliebster Jesu for unison choir and organ.  Very effective organ accompaniment.

Ah, holy Jesus, how hast thou offended,
That man to judge thee hath in hate pretended?
By foes derided, by thine own rejected,
O most afflicted.

Who was the guilty?
Who brought this upon thee?
Alas, my treason, Jesus hath undone thee.
'Twas I Lord, Jesus, I it was denied thee:
I crucified thee.

Therefore, kind Jesus, since I cannot pay thee,
I will adore thee, and will ever pray thee,
Think on thy pity, and thy love unswerving;
Not my deserving.
