From the Orgelbuchlein, No. 34 of 45: Es ist das Heil uns kommen her (BWV 637) by J.S. Bach (1685-1750).

3 Manual, 48 stop Hendrik Ahrend "Bach Organ" (2020), sampled by Pipeloops.

1.Salvation has come to us
from grace and pure kindness
Works can never help,
they offer no protection.
Faith looks towards Jesus Christ
who has done enough for us all.
He has become our mediator

3.It was a misleading delusion to think
that God had given his law
as if we ourselves could freely
live according to his will.
The law is in fact a subtle mirror
that reveals to us the sinful nature
hidden within our flesh.

4.It was not possible to escape from
this nature through our own strength.
Though attempts were often made,
sin increased without measure.
For God greatly condemns hypocrisy,
and the shame of sin
was always innate in the flesh.

5.Yet the law had to be fulfilled,
or else we were all ruined.
God therefore sent his Son to us,
who himself became man;
he fulfilled the whole law,
and so appeased his Father’s wrath
which hung over all of us

6.And since the law has now been fulfilled
through him who was able to keep it,
each devout Christian should now understand
the right form of faith.
Nothing more than this:my dear Lord,
your death becomes my life,
you have paid the price for me.
