Cantata BWV 95 - “Christus, der ist mein Leben” - 1. Chorus and Recitative (tenor)

Collegium Vocale Gent, under the direction of Philippe Herreweghe

Translation:
  Christ is my life,
  death is my reward;
  to which I abandon myself,
  I joyfully depart from here.
With joy,
indeed with heart-felt delight
I wish to depart from here.
Even if today it came: you must!
Yet I am willing and ready
to place my poor body, my exhausted limbs,
the garment of mortality
again in the earth
and in its bosom.
My funeral song is already completed;
ah, that I might sing it today!
  With peace and joy I depart
  in God’s will,
  My heart and mind are comforted,
  calm, and quiet.
  As God had promised me:
  death has become my sleep.

Ballerinas, Edgar Degas, part III.
