Motet BWV 226

   

Title:

Der Geist hilft unser Schwachheit auf

   

Choir:

2 SATB

Instruments:

2 Ob, Tle, Fg, 2 Vn, Va, Vc, Bc (+ Vne)

Text:

Der Geist hilft unser Schwachheit auf, denn wir wissen nicht, was wir beten sollen, wie sich's gebühret;
sondern der Geist selbst vertritt uns aufs beste mit unaussprechlichem Seufzen.
Der aber die Herzen forschet, der weiß, was des Geistes Sinn sei; denn er vertritt die Heiligen nach dem, das Gott gefället.

 

Du heilige Brunst, süßer Trost
Nun hilf uns, fröhlich und getrost
In deinem Dienst beständig bleiben,
Die Trübsal uns nicht abtreiben.
O Herr, durch dein Kraft uns bereit
Und stärk des Fleisches Blödigkeit,
Dass wir hie ritterlich ringen,
Durch Tod und Leben zu dir dringen.
Halleluja, halleluja.
