Quote from Wikipedia:

Bach wrote the cantata in his fourth year in Leipzig for the Feast of the Purification of Mary. The prescribed readings were Mal 3.1-4 NIV and Lk 2.22-32 NIV, the presentation of the Lord. The gospel briefly mentions the cleansing of Mary and details Simeon, who was prophesied that he would not die until he saw the Messiah. His hymn Nunc dimittis (“Lord, now let your servant go in peace”) is an integral part of Compline and Anglican Evensong.

In previous years, Bach had performed two cantatas for the festival, also focusing on Simeon’s hymn of praise, Freuden Zeit im Neuen Bunde, BWV 83, 1724, and the chorale cantatas on Luther’s hymn as a paraphrase of the hymn of praise, Mit Fried und Freud ich fahr dort, BWV 125, 1725. Even more than in the earlier works, the theologian and Bach student Christoph Birkmann (1703–1771) as the lyricist in I Have Enough emphasizes the longing to escape earthly misery and to be united with Jesus.

Bach first performed the cantata on February 2, 1727. The surviving score and parts show that he performed the cantata at least three more times, in a version for soprano, BWV 82a, first perhaps in 1731 or even as early as 1730, another version for soprano in 1735, and finally again for bass, with only minor changes from the original, after 1745. Bach obviously held the work in high esteem.

The first recitative and a large part of the aria Schlummert ein were copied into the Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach in a version with continuo accompaniment, probably by Anna Magdalena Bach herself for her own use. Other cantatas that Bach performed on the occasion of the Purification of the Virgin Mary were, after Alfred Dürr: Come, you sweet hour of death, BWV 161, I won’t let you, you bless me then, BWV 157, and Der Frieden sei mit dir, BWV 158, to similar ones Subjects.

In the first version of the cantata, the bass voice was probably chosen by the aged Simeon. The soprano voice makes it clearer that the situation applies to the believer in general.

The solo bass is accompanied in five movements by oboe, two violins, viola and basso continuo (with separately written out and differing parts for organ and bass instrument).
