Motet Translations

Dietrich Buxtehude: "Sicut Moses," BuxWV 97

John 3: 14-15

Sicut Moses serpentum in deserto exaltavit
Ita filium hominis oportet exaltari,
Ut omnis, qui credit in eum,
Non pereat sed habeat vitam aeternam. Amen.
Just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert,
So must the Son of Man be lifted up
So that everyone who believes in Him
May not die but have eternal life. Amen.
