Homilius is known for having always searched for new forms in order to avoid any schematic pattern. Thus, one looks in vain in the present cantata for arias. The opening choir is introduced by two choral groups: One calls to take up the fight against the devil, while the other fearfully hesitates and finally, in the chorale "Jesus Christus, wohn uns bei" agrees to join in. Following each of the three stanzas of the embellished chorale, in a recitative the hesitant one is given courage before he also takes up arms, in a confident final chorus. Score available separately - see item CA.3721900.
