A rather unknown hymn for New Year's Day. I had to find the text via Google Books in an old German hymn book. If you only know the first line, this piece seems to call for a very soft and sweet registration, as indeed most performers seem to use. But when reading the full lyrics, a little bit more power seems more appropriate to me.

Das Jesulein soll doch mein Trost,
mein Heiland sein und bleiben,
der mich geliebet und erlöst,
kein G’walt soll mich abtreiben.
Ihm thu ich mich
ganz williglich
von Herzensgrund ergeben,
es mag mir sein
weh oder fein,
mag sterben oder leben.
