Description

An English-language version of Brahms' famous motet Lass dich nur nichts nicht dauren, Op.30. SATB and organ. Stunningly beautiful and soothing, with quite possibly the most perfect choral Amen ever composed. Text by Paul Fleming, translated by Walter Buszin.

Let nothing ever grieve thee, distress thee, nor fret thee; heed God's good will, my soul, be still, compose thee.
Why brood all day in sorrow? Tomorrow will bring thee God's help benign and grace sublime in mercy.
Be true in all endeavor, and ever do bravely; what God decrees brings joy and peace, He'll stay thee.
Amen.
