Ein deutsches RequiemJohannes Brahms (1833 – 1897)

I. Selig sind, die da Leid tragen

Blessed are they that mourn

Selig sind, die da Leid tragen, denn sie sollen getröstet werden. Die mit Tränen säen, werden mit Freuden ernten. Sie gehen hin und weinen und tragen edlen Samen, und kommen mit Freuden und bringen ihre Garben

Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted. They who sow in tears, shall reap in joy. Go forth and cry, bearing precious seed, and come with joy bearing their sheaves
