Description

Unison voices, violin, and organ. 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. Text translated by Catherine Winkworth.

Zion hears the watchmen singing,
And all her heart with joy is springing;
She wakes, she rises from her gloom;
For her Lord comes down all glorious,
The strong in grace, in truth victorious.
Her Star is risen, her Light is come.
Ah come, Thou blessèd One, God’s own belovèd Son:
Alleluia! We follow till the halls we see
Where Thou hast bid us sup with Thee.
