Durch dein Gefngnis, Gottes Sohn,

ist uns die Freiheit kommen.


Dein Kerker ist der Gnadenthron,
die Freiheit aller Frommen.
Denn gingst du nicht die Knechtschaft ein,
mt unsre Knechtschaft ewig sein.
... damit dieses eine wohlklingende Harmonie gebe zur Ehre Gottes und
zulssiger Ergtzung des Gemts und soll wie aller Musik ... Finis und
Endursache anders nicht, als nur zu Gottes Ehre und Recreation des Gemths
sein. Wo dieses nicht in acht genommen wird, da ist's keine eigentliche Musik
sondern ein teuflisches Geplrr und Geleyer.
Alles, was man tun mu, ist, die richtige Taste zum richtigen Zeitpunkt zu
treffen.
Wenn ich einmal sollt scheiden, so scheide nicht von mir
Wir setzen uns mit Trnen nieder
und rufen dir im Grabe zu:
Ruhe sanft, sanfte Ruh!
Wem die Kunst das Leben ist, dessen Leben ist eine groe Kunst.
Bu und Reu
knirscht das Sndenherz entzwei.
Ich genge mich an meinem Stande
Ich genge mich an meinem Stande,
in den der Hchste mich gesetzt,
Und acht es gar fr keine Schande,
bin ich nicht jedem gleichgeschtzt.
Ich darf so wenig meinen Schpfer
anklagen als der Ton den Tpfer.
