RESPONSE:  Partita and Choral Variations on “Herzliebster Jesu” by Robert Benson

Chorale I:  Ah, holy Jesus, how hast thou offended that we to judge thee have in hate pretended? By foes derided, by thine own rejected, O most afflicted.

Reflection
Partita I:  Bibinium –Contemplation of the Cross

Chorale II:  Who was the guilty? Who brought this upon thee? Alas, my treason, Jesus, hath undone thee. ‘Twas I, Lord Jesus. I it was denied thee. I crucified thee.

Reflection
Partita II:  Tricinium-Blodd, tears, sweat. Christ forgives the thief 

Chorale III:  Lo, the Good Shepherd for the sheep is offered; the slave hath sinned, and the Son hath suffered; for our atonement while we nothing heeded; God interceded.

Reflection
Partita III:  Christ Commens his Spirit to the Father 

Chorale IV:  For me, kind Jesus, was thine incarnation, they mortal sorrow, and thy life’s oblation; thy death of anguish and thy bitter passion, for my salvation.

Reflection
Partita IV:  The Temple Veil is Rent in Twain

Chorale V:  Therefore, kind Jesus, since I cannot pay thee, I do adore thee, and will ever pray thee; think on thy pity and thy love unswerving, not my deserving.
[Text: Johann Heemann; trans. Robert Bridges][Tune: Johann Crüger]

SCRIPTURE READING:  Mark 15:46
