A cantata is a sacred song. It is sung with a tune, lyrics, and refrain. The tune, lyrics, and refrain are all sacred because they bring us into an awareness of the sacredness of all things, including our bodies.

This is a bit of a rant, but I’d like to point out that the Bible is full of such songs. Some of these were sung specifically to help us deal with our own mortality. The song “God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen” has a tune that says, “This is the last time you’ll see the sun.

Well, we all know that the sun is coming up tomorrow. We are all pretty familiar with this, but let’s look at this song from the perspective of a person who is already quite old. The first line is, I love to see the sun. Then the second line is, I love to see the sun, when i am going to die. The third line is, I love to see the sun, when I am going to die.

That last line is quite poignant. The message is, “I love to see the sun, when I am going to die.” The next line says “I love to see the sun, when I am going to die” but the second line says “i am going to die”, which has this effect – “i am going to die”.

I love to see the sun, when I am going to die. That’s a pretty great line.

Here’s the thing, it’s not that all lines are poignant, but there are some lines that are. The first line is, I love to see the sun, when I am going to die. The second line is, I love to see the sun, when I am going to die. The third line is, I love to see the sun, when I am going to die.

I love to see the sun, when I am going to die. No, I love to see the sun, when I am going to die. Thats a pretty great line.

The last line in the first stanza is the most poignant. The last line in the second stanza is the most poignant. The last line in the third stanza is the most poignant.

As I’ve noted before, the cantata format is a form of poetry. It’s like saying “I love to see the sun, when I am going to die.” and ending it with the line “when I am going to die.

It’s just that this is a cantata which means that it is a series of lines of text which in turn means it has a beginning, middle, and end. Because each line of text has a beginning and middle, and an end, cantatas are not really different from poems in other genres. But they are different (and as a result, more powerful) in their own unique ways.
