composed by Bach

The Little Organ Book BWV.599-644 is a music note which contains 164 choral titles. However, Johann Sebastian Bach wrote only 47 (including a fragment). "O Mensch, bewein' dein' Sunde gross",No.24, BWV.622, is the same as the last choral in the part one of Matthaus Passion BVW.244. Very beautiful and poignant.

O Mensch, bewein' dein' Sunde gross,
darum Christus sein's Vaters Schooss
aussert und kam auf Erden.
Von einer Jungfrau rein und zart
fur uns er hier geboren ward,
er wollt' der Mittler werden.
Den Todten er das Leben gab
und legt' dabei all' Krankheit ab,
bis sich die Zeit herdrange,
dass er fur uns gekopfert wurd',
trug uns'rer Sunden schwere Burd'
