Also known as Gottes Sohn ist Kommen, which appear as the lyrics. This is one of the few pieces with registrational instructions by Bach himself.
"Man. Princip. 8.F. und Ped. Tromp. 8 Fuss." An approximation using the Zwelwerk Schalmei 8' (slightly softer to balance with manual) coupled to the
Pedaal seems to fulfill the spirit of this instruction. Preceded by chorale on which this Prelude is based (Zwelwerk Gemshoorn 8' + Roerfluit 4').

- Chorale Text
Gottes Sohn ist kommen
uns Allen zu Frommen
hie auf diesen Erden
in armen Geberden,
dass er uns von Sünde
freie und entbinde.
Once He came in blessing,
All our ills redressing,
Came in likeness lowly,
Son of God most holy;
Bore the cross to save us,
Hope and freedom gave us.
--Tr. Cath. Winkworth, 1862
