The present cantata is a setting of the first three verses of the hymn "Du Friedefurst, Herr Jesu Christ," with a text by Jakob Ebert (1549-1614). In the variety of ways for deploying the instruments in concert and the alternation between the instrumental and vocal parts, it goes beyond the comparatively simple model found in other cantatas of Buxtehude.
