PAINTED ROAD

Lyrics arr. Roger Coghill

Music:  From Bach’s Notebook for Anna Magdalena, BMV 508 (attrib to Stoelzel)


Stay by my Side,

I’ll be contented

Your gentle hand to lead

is all I’ll ever need

Walking the painted road to Paradise


Bist du bei Mir, geh Ich mit Freuden

Zum sterben und zu meiner Ruh.

Zum sterben und zu meiner Ruh.


Stay by my side

I ll be contented

Your gentle hand to lead is all I’ll ever need,

Walking the painted road to Paradise.


Ah, what delight, Just to be near you

To look into your eyes, the truth that in them lies

Shows me the painted way to Paradise.


Ach, wie vergnugt, war so mein Ende

Es druckten deine schonen Hande

Mir die getreuen augen zu!


Stay by my side, and I’ll be contented

Your gentle hand to lead is all I’ll ever need

Walking the painted road to Paradise.
