Bleib bei uns, denn es will Abend werden (Stay with us, for evening falls), BWV 6,[a] is a cantata by Johann Sebastian Bach. He composed the church cantata in Leipzig for Easter Monday and first performed it on 2 April 1725.

The work opens with a large-scale chorus of a freely polyphonic tone poem, reminiscent of a slow sarabande or of the closing of the St John Passion. The movement is unusual among Bach's works in that despite being a large choral movement, it is neither a chorale nor a fantasia. The musicologist Julian Mincham suggests that this may indicate a sense of creative burnout on Bach's part, given his demanding compositional schedule. The vocal lines in this movement descend on "denn es will Abend werden" (for evening is nigh) "as if the gloom of night were weighing upon them". The middle section is a fugal texture in C minor and common time, dominated by imitative counterpoint.

The second movement, an alto aria in da capo form, is in E-flat major, moving to B-flat and E-flat minor in the middle section. The vocal line is accompanied by an oboe da caccia obbligato.

The third movement is a setting of a chorale in B-flat major. The piccolo cello part was likely a later addition; the part is high and quite technically difficult. This movement was later adapted as one of the Schübler Chorales, BWV 649.

The final three movements are all in G minor: a recitative for bass, an aria for tenor, and a closing chorale. The recitative employs a "threatening chromatic bass line" to remind listeners of "the gravity of the situation". The aria is characterized by a persistent walking rhythm, somewhat mitigated by the flowing triplets in the violin line. Mincham suggests that the closing chorale is "quarried very little for musical building blocks", ending the work on a sombre tone.

I created this arrangement of the opening Chorus: "Bleib bei uns, denn es will Abend werden, und der Tag hat sich geneiget" (Stay with us, for evening falls, and the day has declined) for Wind Ensemble (Flute, Oboe, English Horn, Bb Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, French Horn & Bassoon) and Concert (Pedal) Harp.
