The cantate was most likely performed for the first time on 27 September, the 16th Sunday after Trinity, 1716 at the Schlosskirche in Weimar. The text originated from the Kantatenjahrgang (yearly cantata cycle), "Evangelisches Andachts-Opffer" (Evangelical Devotional Offering) by the secretary of the Weimar high conistory, Salomon Franck. The sermon text for the 16th Sunday after Trinity, the raising of the boy from the dead at Nain (Luke 7: 11-14), is only indirectly reflected in Franck's cantata text. In a prevalent interpretation from that period of this biblical text, the raising of the dead is seen as an allegory for the resurrection of the faithful.
