Unser Wandel ist im Himmel

Heinrich Schütz (1585-1672)

Original Text

English Translation

 

Unser Wandel ist im Himmel
von dannen wir auch warten des Heilands,
Jesu Christi, des Herren,
welcher unsern nichtigen Leib verklären wird,
daß er ähnlich werde
seinem verklärten Leibe,
nach der Wirkung
damit er kann auch alle Ding
ihm untertänig machen.

Our homeland is in heaven,
from where comes the Savior we are waiting for,
the Lord Jesus Christ,
who will transfigure
these earthbound bodies of ours
into copies of his radiant body.
He will do that by the same power
with which he can subdue
all things.


This piece was performed by the SFBC in Early Masters of the German Baroque on October 26, 1996.
