This chorale survives without text. The text that appears here is the one provided by editors of the Bach Gesellschaft Ausgabe (BGA).
This setting is a four–part realization of a two–part chorale (with figured bass) from the Schemelli Gesangbuch. The chorale appears in the Schemelli under the title "Der Tag ist hin, die Sonne gehet nieder", a text by Johann Christoph Rube (1714). (See Chorale No.3 on p.108 of NBA III/2.1) For a full listing of four–part realizations of two–part Schemelli chorales, visit Schemelli Realizations.
