Der Ruf von Golgatha / The Call of Golgotha

1. Hear the voice of eternal love

Resound from Golgotha with might.

Oh, to guide you to the Savior!

World, pay heed to what is said!

Alleluia, alleluia.

Jesus calls: "It is finished!"

Amen.


2. O how bliss awakes the heart!

Here is what can bring us joy;

For the sun shines from the cross upon us,

And drives away the night of sin.

Alleluia, alleluia.

Jesus calls: "It is finished!"

Amen.


3. Jubilate, you choirs of angels,

Join our loving hymn of praise!

Hear, poor sinners, listen::

Blessed, blessed shall you be.

Alleluia, alleluia.

Jesus calls: "It is finished!"

Amen.





Vater Unser is a setting of the Lord’s prayer by the famous Russian composer Nikolai Rimsky Korsakov, who also wrote such well-known pieces as Sheherazade. Translation follows … so please enjoy this piece as sung by the German Choir of 20 years ago.


Vater Unser

(The Lord’s Prayer -- King James Bible version)

Our Father which art in heaven,

Hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come.

Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever.

Amen.
