Christ, unser Herr, zum Jordan kam, BWV684

composer
1739; Clavier-Übung III, Liepzig

 
Christ, unser Herr is a hymn about baptism written by Martin Luther in 1541. The melody, which is older, featured in a hymnal by Johann Walter of 1524; it is heard unadorned in the pedals, while the waters of the Jordan are represented by the continuous flow of semiquavers in the left hand. The right hand presents a four-note figure suggesting the sign of the (baptismal) Cross.
