Text known to Bach (Weimar 1713):
Gelobet seyst du/ Jesu Christ/
daß du Mensch gebohren bist/
von einer Jungfrau daß ist wahr/
des freuet sich der Engel-Schaar/
Praise be to you, Jesu Christ,
that you are born man
of a virgin, that is true,
in this the angel host rejoices.
Lord have mercy.
Melody: Anon. 15th century, ? Medingen c.1460-65
Text: 14th-century Leise adapted from the Gregorian Grates nunc omnes reddamus,
extended and consolidated c.1523 – Martin Luther (1483-1546)
