Also hat Gott die Welt geliebt
Daß er seinen eingebornen Sohn gab,
Auf daß alle, die an ihm glauben,
Nicht verloren werden,
Sondern das ewige Leben haben.
For God so loved the world
that he gave his only Son,
that all who believe in him
should not perish
but have eternal life.
This piece was performed by the SFBC in Early Masters of the German Baroque on October 26, 1996.
