This is typical of Erlebach's cantatas: after the opening choral section (which can also be sung by the four soloists) comes an aria in which each of the four voices has one verse, followed by an instrumental ritornello, then a reprise of the chorus. This piece was written for the 2nd Day of Easter and adds two trumpets in C to the composer's usual five-part string band.
