A lovely trio, apparently by Bach's pupil, Gottfried August Homilius (1714-1785). The solo stops are 8 Principal with Sesquialtera on the Great organ,
Principal alone for the repeat.

- Chorale Text
Schmücke dich, o liebe Seele,
Lass die dunkle Sündenhöhle,
Komm ans helle Licht gegangen,
Fange herrlich an zu prangen!
Denn der Herr, voll Heil und Gnaden,
Der den Himmel kann verwalten,
Will jetzt Herberg in dir halten.
--Johann Franck, 1649
Deck thyself, my soul, with gladness,
Leave the gloomy haunts of sadness
Come into the daylight's splendor,
There with joy Thy praises render
Unto him whose grace unbounded
Hath this wondrous banquet founded,
High o'er all the heab'ns He reigneth,
Yet to dwell with thee He deigneth.
