It is part of his chorale cantata cycle. Bach wrote the cantata inhis second year as Thomaskantor in Leipzigfor the First Sunday of Advent. The cantata is based on Martin Luther 's Advent hymn in eight stanzas " Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland ", the number one hymn to begin the Liturgical year in all Lutheran hymnals. Bach first performed the cantata on 3 December and he performed it again inadding a part for violone in all movementsafter the Thomasschule had bought an instrument at an auction in The cantata in six movements is scored for four vocal soloists sopranoaltotenorand bassa four-part choirand a Baroque instrumental ensemble of horn only to support the chorale melody, two oboestwo violinsviolaand basso continuo.

This can be traced back both to qualities inherent in the chorale tune itself, and to the central place Bach gives to Luther's words. The first aria deals with the mystery of "the Supreme Ruler appears to the world, … the purity will be entirely unblemished.
In great contrast the second aria stresses fight, "Struggle, conquer, powerful hero! The closing stanza is a four-part setting. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
