Text known to Bach (Weimar 1713):

Nun giebt mein Jesus gute Nacht/
nun ist sein Leiden gantz vollbracht/
nun hat er seiner Seelen-Pfand
geliefert in des Vaters Hand.


Now as my Jesus bids good night,
now his suffering is fully accomplished,
now he has his soul’s pledge
delivered into his Father’s hand.

Melody: Michael Weiße (?): Nun loben wir mit Innigkeit – Jungbunzlau 1531 (Bohemian Brethren)
Text: Johann Rist (1607-67): Neue Musicalische Fest-Andachten, Lüneburg 1655
