Heinrich Isaac, 1490

2 What better can befall me

No good He e'er neglected, Than that the Lord doth call me

And all His works His glory tell. From hence, where sin holds sway?

6 When ye shall see me nearing Who is on earth a stranger

The throne of God, appearing Must ever be in danger,

Adorned and crowned a bride, Till God hath closed life's fleeting day.

My palms of victory swinging, 3 God takes His own from anguish

'Midst Hallelujahs ringing, And pain, in which they languish

In beauteous grace the Lamb beWithin this vale of tears,

side: And gives them to inherit The crown that Christ did merit:

7 Ye both shall rue the sadness The joy of heaven's eternal years.

That made you weep, and gladness 4 I was on earth your treasure;

E’er in your hearts shall reign.

Who follows where God guideth, When now I know but pleasure

And takes what He provideth, Ye weep in bitter woe;

Shall know surcease from all his Believe, whate'er betideth,

pain. God's love in all abideth, And soon your tears shall cease to 8 Farewell, I now must leave you; flow.

The grief this day doth give you 5 Our days the Lord appointeth,

Soon others, too, shall bear. He woundeth and anointeth,

Be ye to God commended; He knoweth all things well.

In heaven all woe is ended, No evil He effected,

And we shall meet in glory there.

J. Heermann, 1634

5 Lo, the Book, exactly worded,

Wherein all hath been recorded!

Thence shall judgment be awarded. 6 When the Judge His seat attaineth,

And each hidden deed arraigneth,

Nothing unavenged remaineth. 7 What shall I, frail man, be pleading?

Who for me be interceding,

When the just are mercy needing? 8 King of majesty tremendous,

Who dost free salvation send us,

Fount of pity, then befriend us! 9 Think, good Jesus! my salvation

Caused Thy wondrous incarnation,

Leave me not to reprobation! 10 Faint and weary Thou hast sought

me, On the cross of suffering bought me: Shall such grace in vain be brought

me?

11 Righteous Judge! for sin's pollution

Grant Thy gift of absolution,

Ere that day of retribution.
12 Guilty, now I pour my moaning,

All my shame with anguish owning:
Spare, O God, Thy suppliant groan-

ing!
13 Thou the sinful woman savedst;

Thou the dying thief forgavest;

And to me a hope vouchsafest. 14 Worthless are my prayers and sigh

ing, Yet, good Lord, in grace complying,

Rescue me from fires undying! 15 With Thy favored sheep O place me!

Nor among the goats abase me;

But to Thy right hand upraise me. 16 While the wicked are confounded,

Doomed to flames of woe unbounded,
Call me, with Thy saints surrounded.
