Bach: Öffne dich, mein ganzes Herze
from Cantata 61 (Kristine Chaney, soprano)

Öffne dich, mein ganzes Herze, Jesus kömmt und ziehet ein.
Bin ich gleich nur Staub und Erde, Will er mich doch nicht verschmähn,
Seine Lust an mir zu sehn, Dass ich seine Wohnung werde
O wie selig werd ich sein!

Open wide, my whole heart, Jesus comes and enters in.
Although I am only ashes and dust, yet he will not disdain
to see his delight within me and that I might become his dwelling.
Oh, how blessed shall I be!

Handel: ‘Then shall the eyes of the blind’ and ‘He shall feed his flock’
from Messiah (Kristine Chaney, soprano)
