Misc. Comments

  • "Der Tag bricht an und zeiget sich" (Michael Weiße 1531) is hymn no. 438 in the Evangelisches Gesangbuch (EG). Alternate lyrics for this hymn is "Die beste Zeit im Jahr ist mein" (Martin Luther 1538).
  • If the original publication date is 1609, then the source would probably be Ein schön geistlich Gesangbuch.
