Psalm 73 – “Whom have I in heaven but thee?”

I love Beethoven and Tchaikovsky!  And Buxtehude!

Psalm 73: “Herr, wenn ich nur dich hab, BuxWV 38

25 Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee. 26 My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.
Hallelujah

Herr, wenn ich nur dich hab, so frag ich nichts nach Himmel und Erden, wenn mirgleich Leib und Seel‘ verschmacht. So bist du doch Gott allezeit meines Herzens Trost und mein Heil. Alleluja.

English from “The Tanahk” – Jewish Publication Society, 1917
