From the first motet, “Warum ist das Licht gegeben den Mühseligen,” which includes Job 3:20-23; Lamentations 3:41; James 5:11 [German]

20 Wherefore is light given to him that is in misery, and life unto the bitter in soul;

21 Which long for death, but it cometh not; and dig for it more than for hid treasures;

22 Which rejoice exceedingly, and are glad, when they can find the grave?

23 Why is light given to a man whose way is hid, and whom God hath hedged in?

41 Let us lift up our heart with our hands unto God in the heavens.

11 Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy.

Zwei Motetten, Op. 74 (1877 for the first motet, which uses Biblical texts), by Johannes Brahms (1833-1897)

Psalm 96:1,3-4; 93:4,9,11

1 O sing unto the Lord a new song: sing unto the Lord, all the earth.

3 Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people.

4 For the Lord is great, and greatly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods.

4 The Lord on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea.

9 O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness: fear before him, all the earth.

11 Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof.
