Rorate Caeli

Tu es spes mea, portio mea in terra viventium


J.S.Bach
Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme [Kantate - BWV 140]
Arie: Wann kommst du, mein Heil?





Wann kommst du, mein Heil?

  - Ich komme, dein Teil. -
Ich warte mit brennenden Öle.
Eröffne den Saal
  - Ich öffne den Saal -
zum himmlischen Mahl.
Komm, Jesu.
  - Ich komme; komm, liebliche Seele. -

When will you come, my Savior?

  - I come, your portion. -
I wait with burning oil.
Now open the hall
  - I open the hall -
for the heavenly meal.
Come, Jesus!
  - I come; come, lovely soul! -

Rorate Caeli Desuper - Hymn for Advent

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S0Rv5F88WYA

Drop down dew, ye heavens, from above, and let the clouds rain the Just One.

Be not angry, O Lord, and remember no longer our iniquity : behold the city of thy sanctuary is become a desert, Sion is made a desert. Jerusalem is desolate, the house of our holiness and of thy glory, where our fathers praised thee.

Drop down dew, ye heavens, from above, and let the clouds rain the Just One.

We have sinned, and we are become as one unclean, and we have all fallen as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away thou hast hid thy face from us, and hast crushed us by the hand of our iniquity.

Drop down dew, ye heavens, from above, and let the clouds rain the Just One.

See, O Lord, the affliction of thy people, and send him whom thou hast promised to send. Send forth the Lamb, the ruler of the earth, from the rock of the desert to the mount of the daughter of Sion, that he himself may take off the yoke of our captivity.

Drop down dew, ye heavens, from above, and let the clouds rain the Just One.

Be comforted, be comforted, my people; thy salvation shall speedily come. Why wilt thou waste away in sadness? why hath sorrow seized thee? I will save thee; fear not: for I am the Lord thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Redeemer.

Drop down dew, ye heavens, from above, and let the clouds rain the Just One.
