This chorale survives without text. The text that appears here is the one provided by editors of the Bach Gesellschaft Ausgabe (BGA).

Häfner speculates that this setting concluded the cantata for Sexagesima Sei getreu bis in den Tod from the Picander–Jahrgang (Picander 20). (See NBA III/2.1 KB, p.59)
