J.S Bach: Mt. Passion - "Aus Liebe will mein Heiland sterben"

Video info:

St. Matthew Passion BWV 244
Aria "Aus Liebe will mein Heiland sterben"
Sibylla Rubens, soprano
Collegium Vocale, Dir. Philippe Herreweghe

Aus Liebe will mein Heiland sterben,
Von einer Sünde weiß er nichts,
Daß das ewige Verderben
Und die Strafe des Gerichts
Nicht auf meiner Seele bleibe.

Out of Love my Saviour is willing to die,
Though he knows nothing of any sin,
So that eternal ruin
And the punishment of judgment
May not rest upon my soul.
