    Can you identify this Bach Chorale?

    I am researching the performance of J.S. Bach's music in Ireland. I have found a Dublin Journal for 1855 which contains a reference to a performance of a Bach Chorale ('There is a calm for those who weep'). Can you help me to identify this Chorale. This is the extract:

    Extract from SAUNDERS NEWSLETTER. (Dublin, Ireland) 3rd March 1855.

    ANTIENT CONCERTS.

    The Society’s Concert of last evening … A variety of choral pieces constituted the first part…The beautiful cantata ‘Saviour of Sinners’ by Mendelssohn, followed, the leading tenor part being taken by Mr Geary. A chorale, ‘There is a calm for those who weep’, by J.S. Bach, accompanied on the organ… completed the first part.

    You can't... I think he's refering to the title "There is a calm for those who weep"... it doesn't appear to be something Bach wrote, or at least not in any generally accepted translation of a chorale by Bach.
    So the questions is rather, I think, which Bach chorale has been given this title?
    I personally can't think of any, but then again, my knowledge of chorales by Bach is somewhat limited.
