O Tag des Herrn
O Day of God. (Col-Nidre.)
Day of God
O Tag des Herrn!
Du nahst
Und das Herz erbebt,
Und Schauer fassen die Seele,
Sie gedenket ihrer Missethat,
Sie gedenket, daß ihr Richter naht,
Und zittert.
Sie bangt, sie zagt; sie weint und klagt
Und vergeht in Thränen.
O day of God!
Thou comst —
And the heart bows down,
And fear o’ershadows the spirit.
She remembers now her evil ways.
As no more her righteous Judge delays,—
And trembles.
She weeps, she sighs, she moans, she cries.
Overwhelmed with sorrow.
O day of God! thou com’st,
Thou com’st, thou com’st, thou com’st!
And my heart is alarmed;
My soul is stricken with terror.
She remembers her sins, with fear,
As the judgment of her God draws near;
And trembles;
She sighs and moans, she cries and groans,
Overwhelmed with anguish.
Fasse Muth, o belastet Herz!
Schau du nur trostvoll himmelwärts!
Gütig ist der Herr,
Gern gibt er Gehör,
Naht sich auszusöhnen.
Courage, heart! Rise now from the dust!—
Heavenward lift thine eyes in trust!
Lo, thy gracious Lord
Speaks the saving word
Of reconciliation.—
Courage heart! rise from the dust!
Heavenward lift Thine eyes in trust.
Lo! thy gracious Lord
Speaks the saving word
Of reconciliation.
Herr Gott, sieh’,
Sieh’ meines Herzens Wehen,
Und neig dein Ohr!
Herr vermmm,
Vernimm mein heißes Flehen,
Oeffn’ uns das Thor!
Nimm weg die Missethat,
Oeffn’ uns das Thor der Gnad’,
Und zieh’ uns empor.
Lord! God! See,—
See Thou my heart’s contrition,
And bow Thine ear!
Hear, hear
the voice of my petition,
Banish my fear!
Blot out my evil ways,
Open the doors of grace,
Bid us enter there!
Lord! behold,
behold my heart’s contrition;
And bow Thine ear!
Hear, O hear
the voice of my petition;
Banish my fear.
My sinful deeds efface;
Open the door of grace;
Bid us enter there!
