This six-verse hymn is based on the melody "Herzlich tut mich verlangen," which Buxtehude used both for the solo cantata Herzlich tut mich verlangen BuxWV 42 and for a chorale prelude entitled Ach Herr, mich armen Sunder BuxWV 178. Apart from the "Amen," with coloratura decoration, the text is set in a simple four-part texture. The accompanying violins are used in the prelude and interludes. This piece exists in a tabulatur copied by Duben before June 1687.
