Note on the text

The librettist has not been identified, but the Weimar court poet, Salomo Franck, has often been cited as a possible author. The text, which draws on Psalm 40 (vv.8-9), as well as incorporating a strophe of Paul Stockmannís hymn Jesu Leiden, Pein und Tod (1633), is closely related to the appointed Palm Sunday Gospel, in particular in the part of it which describes Christís entry into Jerusalem.
