J.S. Bach's Christmas Oratorio

Schlafe, mein Liebster, genieße der Ruh,
Sleep, my dearest, enjoy your rest.
Wache nach diesem vor aller Gedeihen!
wake after this so that all may thrive!
Labe die Brust,
Comfort the breast,
Empfinde die Lust,
feel the pleasure
Wo wir unser Herz erfreuen!
with which we make glad our hearts!

text by Christian Friedrich Henrici (1700-1764)
