Dietrich Buxtehude's Herr, Wenn Ich Nur Dich Hab Performed by Victoria Evtodieva & Musica Antiqua Russica, Directed by Vladimir Shulyakovskiy

Some exquisite High-Church Lutheranism for you. Psalm 72 provides the text:
    Herr, wenn ich nur dich hab, so frag ich nichts nach Himmel und Erden, wenn mirgleich Leib und Seel‘ verschmacht. So bist du doch Gott allezeit meines Herzens Trost und mein Heil. Alleluja.

    For what have I in heaven? and besides thee what do I desire upon earth? For thee my flesh and my heart hath fainted away: thou art the God of my heart, and the God that is my portion for ever.
