This lyrics of the Expectation of the Saviour, conceived by Franziska von Hoffnaaß – poet and later wife of the composer Joseph Gabrien Rheinberger – was originally the basis for the opening chorus of her husband's Christmas cantata Der Stern von Bethlehem (The Star of Bethlehem). Martin Stampfl takes the text and develops from the beginning as yet gloomy C minor, an almost completely homophonic, urgent a cappella motet which calls to heaven the truest sense of the world a hopeful "Tu, Erde, dich auf, dem himmlischen Segen" (Open up, earth, the heavenly blessing). Lyrics in German.
