This piece is part of the set "Seven psalms".

The set also includes:

One of a set of seven delightful psalm settings by Heinrich Schütz (from Opus 5, Becker Psalter settings) in fresh English paraphrases. Schütz’s psalms are tuneful, rhythmic, easy to learn, and useful throughout the year.

Oh, what a good and pleasant thing when kindred dwell in unity.
In such a way should Christian folk all live in peace and harmony.

For, as from Hermon's mountain height cool morning dew runs down below,
Watering Zion's holy hill, causing green leaf and blade to grow,

Just so will God his Grace and Life grant unto hearts by peace possessed.
Thus will they here God's goodness find, and be in the hereafter blessed.

Wie ists so fein, lieblich und schön, wenn Brüder wohl zusammen stehn,
Auch insgemein die Christenleut leben in Fried und Einigkeit.

Gleich wie der kühle Morgentau von Hermon fället in die Au,
Befeuchtet auch die Berg Zion, Laub und Gras lieblich wächst davon,

Also Gott Gnad und Leben gibt dem, der von Herzen Frieden liebt.
Friedfertgen Leuten ist bereit hier Guts and dort die Seligkeit.

Cornelius Becker (1561 — 1604)
