This extraordinary hymn was written by Michael Weisse in the very early 16th century in Silesia.
I can’t find the German or English anywhere for the life of me, so sorry to leave you hanging. Nevertheless, I can’t get enough of the tune. It’s classic German and classic Baroque at the same time: solid, four-square construction, with gorgeous but sober harmony. It’s an earth-bound hymn with heaven-ward eyes, like all good prayers should be.
