The Finery of a Christian

Members of Christ, ah, consider

what the Savior has bestowed on you

Through the pure bath of baptism!

From this fountain of blood and water

your garments become bright

that were stained by your sins.

Christ gave you new clothes:

scarlet purple, white silk.

These are the finery of a Christian!

J S Bach, Bereitet die Wege, bereitet die Bahn! (text, music)

From the album J. S. Bach, Christmas Cantatas, by the Aradia Ensemble.
