Spring's Sweet Cantata

"Listen, can you hear it Spring's sweet cantata. The strains of grass pushing through the snow. The song of buds swelling on the vine. The tender timpani of a baby robin's heart. spring." ~~Andrew Schneider ( Cantata 147 . Herz und Mund und Tat und Leben, Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring ) on You Tube by Johann Sebastian Bach.


Verse from Cantata 147:

"Theirs is beauty's fairest pleasure;

Theirs is wisdom's holiest treasure.


Thou dost ever lead Thine own

In the love of joys unknown. "


Or in German...

" meiner Augen Lust und Sonne,

meiner Seele Schatz und Wonne;


darum laß' ich Jesum nicht

aus dem Herzen und Gesicht. "
