Litanies, Jehan Alain

“Quand l’âme chrétienne ne trouve plus de mots nouveaux dans la détresse pour implorer la miséricorde de Dieu, elle répète sans cesse la même invocation avec une foi véhémente. La raison atteint sa limite. Seule lafoi poursuit son ascension.” –Jehan Alain
When the Christian soul in distress cannot find any new words to implore the mercy of God, it repeats the sameinvocation over and over again in an intense faith. The limits of reason are reached. Faith alone continues its ascent.

O Mensch, bewein’ dein’ Sünde groß (BWV 622), J. S. Bach
