Christum wir sollen loben schon (We should already be praising Christ), BWV 121, is a church cantata by Johann Sebastian Bach. He composed the cantata in his second year in Leipzig for the second day of Christmas. The prescribed readings for the feast day were from the Epistle to Titus (Titus 3:4–7), the Acts of the Apostles (Acts 6:8–15 and Acts 7:55–60), and the Gospel of Luke (Luke 2:15–20).

The source for the melody is Martin Luther's setting of the hymn "Christum wir sollen loben schon", a German translation of the Latin "A solis ortus cardine" (c. 430). The opening chorus is its first verse and the closing chorale is its eighth verse, both unchanged. The hymn's other verses are freely adapted as madrigalian recitatives and arias.

This, the bass aria "Johannis freudenvolles Springen" (John's joyful leaps) is almost dance-like, playing with the harmony and portraying jumps, reflecting the movement's text's references to John the Baptist's jumping in his mother's womb during the Visitation of Mary. The binary-form string ritornello repeats four times during the aria, framing three separate vocal sections of the da capo aria.

Although originally scored for bass vocal soloist, two violins, viola, and basso continuo, I created this arrangement for French Horn & Strings (2 Violins, Viola & Cello).
