BWV 4, 8 Choral "Wir essen und leben wohl".

Wir essen und leben wohl
In rechten Osterfladen,
Der alte Sauerteig nicht soll
Sein bei dem Wort der Gnaden,
Christus will die Koste sein
Und speisen die Seel allein,
Der Glaub will keins andern leben.
Halleluja!

We eat now and live indeed

We eat now and live indeed
On this true bread of Easter;
The ancient leaven shall not
Bide with the word of favor;
Christ would be our sustenance
And nourish the soul alone,
For faith would on none other live.
Hallelujah!
 
Thanks!
