This motet is from the choir work Geisliche Chormusik that consists of 29 motets.  The tonal language of Schütz is very dramatic and is dominated by very rhythmic polyphonic writing.  This is a very expressive work from the early baroque period.  This arrangement is in the original key.

Original German text: 
Unser Wandel ist im Himmel

von dannen wir auch warten des Heilands,
Jesu Christi, des Herren.

Welcher unser nichtigen Leib verklären wird

daß er ähnlich werde seinem verklärten Leibe,

nach der Wirkung damit er kann auch alle Ding

ihm untertänig machen. 

English translation:
Our homeland is in heaven;
from where we also look for 
the Savior,
Jesus Christ the Lord.
Who shall transform our earthbound body,
so that it will be like His glorious body,

using to the power 
with which 
All things are made
 humble under Him.
