|BWV 148 Bringet dem Herrn Ehre seines Namens
Seventeenth Sunday after Trinity.
Probably Picander; Movements 2-5, similar to a poem of six verses in Christian Friedrich Henrici (Picander), Sammlung Erbaulicher Gedancken (Leipzig, 1724/1725); Facs: Neumann T, p. 307.
1. Ps. 96:8-9 or 29:2; 6. melody without text of "Auf meinen lieben Gott"; Neumann T supplies Erk's suggestion of verse 6 of this hymn (Lübeck, before 1603); BG supplies Spitta's suggestion of the eleventh and final verse of "Wo soll ich fliehen hin," Johann Heermann, 1630 (Fischer-Tümpel, I, #322).
Perhaps 19 September 1723, Leipzig.
BG 30; NBA I/23.
1. Chorus [Dictum] (S, A, T, B)
Bring to the Lord honor for his name's sake, worship ye the Lord with holy display.
2. Aria (T)
I hasten to hear now
Of sounds of glad music
To praise the Almighty the sanctified make!
3. Recit. (A)
Like as the hart for cooling waters cries,
4. Aria (A)
Voice and heart to thee are open,
Faith and love and trust and patience
Shall my bed of rest now be.
5. Recit. (T)
And bide, my God, in me
6. Chorale (S, A, T, B)
[Amen at ev'ry hour
[Lead both my heart and will
