Text known to Bach (Weimar 1713):

Wir dancken dir/ O Jesu Christ/
daß du das Lämmlein worden bist/
und trägt all unser Sünd und Schuld/
hilf das wir rühmen deine Huld.


We thank you, O Jesu Christ,
that you became the Lamb,
and bear all our sin and guilt.
Help us to extol your grace.

Melody: Bartholomäus Gesius (c.1562-1613) – Frankfurt an der Oder 1605
Text: 1572, Nikolaus Selnecker (1532-92)
