This cantata combines two texts: "Erhalt uns Herr bei deinem Wort" and "Verleih uns Frieden gnadiglich." The Lubeckisches Gesangbuch of 1703 included both hymns, with a verse by Johann Walter added, to the melody "Erhalt uns Herr." This was the basis for Buxtehude's composition. The copy of the tabulature of this cantata in the Duben Collection can be dated to the summer or autumn months of 1687. The composition consists of a four-part homophonic performance of the chorale verses, with a ritornello played by the accompanying instruments between the verses. A slightly polyphonic "Amen" completes the work. Score and part available separately - see item CA.3601500.
